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.
