    jen's right. If the bird is older, you can feel between the
    pelvis bone very gently as it is easy to break. If there's egg
    passing space, then odds are its a female. If the pevis bones
    are right next to each other with no opening between them,
    odds are its a male. Another way to tell is by the way they
    stand. When perching, the female's legs will be spread apart
    more than a male. Remember that these are only on older birds.
    DNA testing is always the best way and it's not expensive.
