Hi! I'm new here, but I've seen a ton of info on green cheek conures and I actually wanted to sex mine.

my pineapple green cheek conure had two ball-like bones close together just above his cloaca. and from further research, I assume that he is a male.

my cinnamon green cheek conure had a very weird pelvic bone. i tried to find these two ball-like points of the pelvic bone and i just couldn't find it, instead, all i found was a very straight and sharp edge straight down the middle.

since the two have extremely different pelvic bones, i can only assume that one is male and one is female, but am i correct? or is my cinnamon green cheek conure just fat.

Any answer helps <3:gcc::19:

Animal genetic o line 25 bucks for DNA test. Yiu print it and barely clip a toe nail to make bleed onky need one drop of blood. Use flour or corn starch and hold on nail to stop bleeding. You print out their form and out the blood on the paper and send off results are fast !

As for going by feel, even vets can't do that . Burd testicle are inside rge belly up by the spine yiu can't feel them

I think cinnamon is sex linked and usually female
