Have them DNA sexed! People will tell you anything to sell
you a bird. Just because they said Pebbles laid eggs, does
not mean it really happened! I know of people who have
purchased so called PROVEN pairs, only to get them home,
have them sexed & have the same sex birds. Same sex birds
You need to separate these birds! Throwing them in the same
cage the day you bring them home is irresponsible. Do a
little research. And, for you to throw a mate in with her &
you are not even sure of it's sex is even more irresponsible.
DNA sexing is only $20 per bird. Spend the money, so you
will know for sure what you have.
