    I just got 7 Royal Palms, about 3 months old. 4 of them have little snoods starting and 3 don't. just wondering if females get snoods, or would they be Toms?

    The females' stay real short. The males' get long and hang way past their beaks.

    LOL I dunno.... mine are almost 5 months old and I still can't tell for sure what they are! But as far as I know both sexes have snoods.... it's just the males' that fall over and get large and droopy. Do let us know though if your observations on snood development prove correct [​IMG]
