Good lord...I swear these IRNs of ours are soo confusing...but I am 100% sure my baby girl is a BOY!

I wish I had pics but Prinny, with this moult, has developed a faint but there tannish colored ring around that neck! It is very noticable now that HE is cleaning up after the moult. There is that space of where the black would be that is filled in with these 'colored' feathers

You can see it clearly...

Heh...I swear once you think you know your bird they turn out to be opposite. Oh well...I have a boy IRN I guess :P

I will try to get pics of it...strange *shakes head*

:shock: :shock: :shock: Im sorry I cant help but laugh. We were told indie was a girl, until the ring came in. Im a bit confused about my blue boy, he has a really pretty ring and all but he is clucking and going into the nest box alot, he is acting like a female while the hen sits on the perch and watches him. :?

I can just picture it ...

"Here darlin, this is how you are meant to do it" *cluck, cluck, in the nest then lay an egg* "O.K. you got it ?"

"Na, show me again, still not sure, just one more time"

(All the while she is snickering at him and how funny he looks, and must look to the humans)

maybe it is the phase of the moon or something...... I swear Gelly looks like she is getting a ring and I am torturing the poor baby taking picture (which are all fuzzy and vague. As if she wasn't grumpy enough from being trekked across half the state.

No I mean you can see a faint coloring...not real 'color' persay but a 'dirtying' of the white...where the ring feathers would be. There is a bit amount of these feathers around his neck...in the perfect shape of a ring.

Although not as pronounced as the males', hens can have rings as well. See picture of the ringed hen below.

Image


Albinos will not have rings, male or female. ADM Recessive Pied IRNs won't have rings either.

In Blue series birds, such as Blue, Turquoise and Albino, the feather structure is actually different where the ring should have been. So in the absence of Black melanin to color up the ring, there is still some sort of a shadow due to the feather structural difference.

Here's another Slaty hen with a ring.

The difference between a male ring and a female ring.

Image

Not considering the father, unless Prinny's mother is a Lutino/Blue, Creamino or Albino, then she cannot be a male.

Baby always had a 'ring' it just never had any color to it, check out old images.

Of course now, its grown in but before it came he always had a 'ring'.

I thought most do, hence ringneck and either it changes with color with males or stays as a faint ring with females.

Interesting!

interesting ..... Gelly's ring has become much more defined, but is mostly white. From Jay's photos, I am guessing she is a girl after all. Seems like she has been awfully aggressive and noisy lately, but it may just be that she is not competing with the dozen finches and dozen budgies, and I never knew how much noise she really made (and I do think she misses all the birds and wildlife outside that kept her amused . . . signed a contract for a house, so she just needs to hang on for 4-6 weeks!)

I am going out to have a look at snowy, she is 3 +yrs and is a dna sexed female.


Just looked at snowy and she only has the part where it looks like her head has been stuck on over the top of her body.
