Ok what difference will that make to her care, you should sprinkle a pinch of calcium powder over her dry feed three times a week.

I do get annoyed (Not with you) when a white cockatoo comes from being adopted (from a rescue or shop) and they have not even noticed if it is male or female, it shows how much the lack of knowledge and study they have had on the species or the bird in there care. I am always trying to find out as much as possible on the birds that come through my door, the more I know of the bird the better I can guide its new care home on what the birds ways and its needs are. I would not expect your mum or your self to know as you both will go by what you have been told.

you kindly took on the birds in an emergency, you was not prepared but you have tried to learn very quickly I will commend you for that, ask any questions we are here to help guide you and your birds by our experiances.

looking at photos can be deceiving so much also depends on the light in the home, day light is the best way of seeing the eye colour properly and looking at the close up of the eye your bird dose look female, looking at the photo with the sun conure I can still notice the brown in your birds eye and the conure eye is black in the same light. I will say your too is femaleView attachment 29292

What does that do? Anything else different for females? And yes, you sure did tell me so. Haha. Thank you. Hey, I’ll take all the info I can get. My head said male but my heart said female. I only wish that I could tell my mom about this, and of course so much more related to how her birds are doing and the experience thus far in how everyone is adjusting.

your mother will most likely be looking down on you...….


and laughing at the top of her voice

I know my mother would be if she was watching me in the same position :thumbsup:

calcium can be used very quickly if she decides she has to lay, no one can tell if and when this will happen as so much depends on diet. if she starts laying and the calcium levels are low the this can cause your bird to be ill and possibility of becoming egg bound. or other complication's that can also lead to death. just a pinch will ensure your bird will have less chance of having these problems.
