Thank you. I really love this bird. He/she is not a pet...the bird lives in our aviary. But we have a sort of relationship and I can perceive the bird's intelligence. It's a joy for me when he/she does "the helicopter" or takes a bath. It's just a disappointment that the bird I acquired to be a non-breeding mate turned out to probably be of the same gender.
Testing the talent.lol
But who will tell if the guess is right or wrong? Pls arrange a pigeon because I read that sometimes it is so difficult to guess pigeon's gender by its looks, only a pigeon can know it for sure.lol
A pretty good way is to put the bird in a cage with a large mirror. See how he reacts to the other bird. A hen will pretty much ignore it, or just sit by it. A male will usually either want to fight with him, or dance and display in front of him. Try it, it's interesting.
There is a way to tell sex by just a glance although I don't know if it holds true with all breeds.
Hens tend to have skinnier flights and longer keel bones.
Cocks have thicker flights and are usually bigger than hens.
Cocks when they coo add/have this extra Wah-Wah sound at the end of the coo.
Hope this helps
