I actually don't know for sure if she is a female I never got her dna tested, Ian thought he had seen her parents when he went to get her but he wasn't positive so I was going off of the genetics with the pearls and also the fact that Ollie tried to get on top of her when I first brought her home he hasn't done it since now he stays far away from her but I don't think he would have done that if she was a male unless of course Ollie was confused...lol :p Minnie is a chatty female but nothing like this Minnie only does it in spurts here and there Hollie has been doing this quite few times day for the past week she was so funny tonight I had some music playing on the computer and she was singing right along :thumbu:

well my friend had a tiel she was SURE was female,... as 'she', many times went up to their male and did the female 'bum up chirping' thing a female does when she likes a boy (complete with 'winking' ... if you know what i mean!)... 'she' also was thought of as a 'vocal' female ...
... the dna came back male....
so in fact, 'she' was a quiet (and a bit confused)male...

You got a chatty one there. One of my birds who I was told is female, is exactly like your one. I hope to god it's not a male 'cause I got it in the cage with my other female bird. :eek:

She is very chatty, she looks like a girl(colour,cuteness), but 'she' may be a 'he'. But she just looks girly! :D:D

LOL....Plukie, its a little different here...hehe I was never second guessing till now :p she is 4 1/2 mths old and for all that time she has been quiet and due to the fact that Ollie tried to jump on her when I first brought her home well one would think she was female, I was also going with genetics pearl is sex linked and I believed her mother was not a pearl and as pearl females cannot be split Hollie would have to be a female, in the past week she started chattering big time and the last two days she started wolf whistling and then yesterday she started trying to whistle the andy griffith tune she has the first line down, so you can understand my confusion now I don't know what to think anymore, either Ollie was really confused and she is a male or I have one talented female which is also possible :p I am still going with female until I know differently.

Well, given the fact that you have a tiel that is in love with a dog, another tiel that is so aloof she can't bear to associate with the other tiels.......I suppose anything can happen in your tielworld!:D:D:D

youre right, if the mother was not pearl, Hollie must be a female...
UNLESS... the father was a true pearl and the sex linked gene has 'jumped' across to be linked to the mothers sex gene...
but i still doubt that it would produce anything but a 'split' male...
genetics are so complicated, it is hard to tell...

i would call the breeder, and double check that the mother was indeed, not a pearl! ;)
