Re: Sexing a Red Rump Parrot

At two years your bird is definitely an adult, they reach maturity at one year old. As far as male or female is concerned however, the opaline/lutino mutations may make that a little harder to determine for sure.

DNA sexing can be done in some parts of the world by sending away a recently plucked feather to a lab for testing, although I've never done it myself. You can of course also have it done by a certified avian vet. The link below may help you find one if you don't have one already.........

Hopefully though Noah may pop by with some more info for you. He really knows his stuff
