    Just click the pic for the video

    He hates being handled at all. He is held every day and acts like this.
    You can hear doc in the background.

    I would say you have a boy there- also looks to be getting a green tinge to the beak which would also indicate a male, but it could just be the light.

    Quote:I hadn't noticed the beak...butttttt he is getting some green around the edges of his wings. haven't been able to get a pic because its so light sensitive, and he hates being held.

    His voice is changing, that's for sure. I think it's still a little early to tell, but I'm leaning towards boy because of his greenish bill.
