    Do you think the knee cap things are genetic. Like if i breed him his off spring will have them as well? They dont bug him.

    It could be genetic, and I would not risk passing the genes for it on. His case might be mild, but it could pop up in future generations even more severe.

    When it comes to birds pretty almost always equals male.
