    Not necessarily, but that is what I had always thought too.
    In fact the Red belly that I have, I had thought was a male
    but turned out to be a female. She is TOTALLY bonded to me
    and I am female. In the past, my female birds would attach
    themselves to my husband, but as I have learned, the sex
    really doesn't seem to make a difference with these guys. I
    think the sex issue would be more pronounced in birds like
    Cockatoos.
    My Red belly would try to bite the you know what out of my
    husband, but she lifts her wings for me so I can kiss them
    underneath...) She is like a dog. She will push her head up
    under my hand when she wants petting (which is just about all
    the time, LOL) is totally comfortable with me turning her
    onto her back, will eat every healthy food there is,
    (brocolli is her fav) loves being with me (and solicites it,
    which is nice)loves playing with all her toys, swinging,
    etc...She loves being held close adn has the most
    entertaining personality I have ever had the pleasure of
    seeing in a parrot. She would be happy to be held all day
    but is quite content to play with her toys and occupy herself
    in her cage too. She really is a perfect bird, and I am very
    lucky to have found her.
