    I don't know if laughing is going to help much, other than
    for self gratification.
    For those of us who acquire a bird and then possibly another
    of the same species for strictly companionship, with no
    intention of breeding in mind, sexing is not a major
    As in my case, I was told I had 2 males and then I started
    noticing some courting traits and mating behaviour, then the
    concern became relivent.
    Now, as I stated, I will have them DNA' reason to
    before now.
    If birds had definite signs of sexing, such as dogs, there
    would no need for topics such as this.

    Thanks for posting.
