Hello I'm Cheryl, I'm new here from the UK and new to Kakariki's anyway I got these 2 birds from a petshop a week ago.. my first I believe a Cinnamon Pied Cock and a Green Pied Hen but can someone correct me if I'm wrong... also sorry for the poor quality pics.. if these are no good I'll try and get better ones!

I believe the Cinnamon Pied is male cuz he?! has a broader, longer beak, wider head and is slightly larger than the Green Pied he?! is also the one the makes most of the noise laughing every morning every hour till mid afternoon signlol joy! The Green Pied very occasionaly joins in but most of the time makes very little noise she?! has a much smaller beak and is an all over daintier bird but any comments much appreciated!

Thanks,
Cheryl

Hi!

I'd say 2 females, the beaks are very narrow compared to the size of the head. And the shape of the body makes me lean towards female.

Cheers / Pablo

Also check the stripe on the underside of the wing
Female has a well defined strip the male fainter and more broken....

Male has a slightly more rounded head, female flatter, thu this is very hard to distinguish.

On second thoughts scrap my last post... after searching the forum now I know what you mean... unfortunately my birds aren't that tame (yet) but I will try IF I can to get a look at the stripe on the underside of the wing.. I did think one of each but now after looking at many photos of male birds I'm leaning more towards female for both with one being slightly larger than the other! Shocked
