Male or female
2 Attachment(s)
I have had Tj since November 2018. She is just starting her first molt. Looking to get confirmation that she is in fact a female since I have read up and observed the ceremony colour over the weeks and I see shades of blue, sometimes mauve and most recently see the white rings around the nostrils. Can I get your thoughts please? Also any suggestions on getting females to talk? Are the males really that much better at it? Much appreciated.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them! ;)

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
