    Not to my knowledge. My last batch the birds were several months old before they made the two different calls/noises. After that I noticed a difference in the size and shape of the male, but it was months.
    If you can invent a way to figure it out, you'll be a rich person!
    Cute babies BTW

    They look to be pearls. I have no wasy of gender checking but I have noticed in my hatches, that some are a lighter "build" than others- and I wonder if they are females. I need to mark a few and follow them until their voices change! :[​IMG]
