    It's really unusual that he talks.
    I didn't read the other posts but I'm sure someone already
    told you that tearing and tucking paper in the feathers
    usually indicates a female bird. I do have one male who can
    do it but it was a learned behavior because two years ago,
    when I sexed him using the tear & tuck method, he could not
    do it.
