My two keets are two years old and their ceres are still pinkish. One is white and the other is mostly white with blue cheeks, tips and back. Does this mean that they are females? There is no sign of any tan or blue.

nope, they're boys because they're both recessive pied.

i put in a nesting box about 2 weeks ago. the female has the crusty cere. and she has a male in the cage. there is nesting material in the box that i put in. in the last 2 weeks she has gone in once. i havent seen any breeding. they groom eachother alot and the male dances for her. but no mating. is this normal?

Thank you all! That's funny! For 2 years we have been calling them "him and her!"

What would happen if I brought in a female? One of the males if very dominant.

don't get a third bird of a different sex. if you want to have an odd number get another male. Especially if one of the males is dominant. Chances are he and the fmale would end up fighting it out to see who's in charge and you dont want that.

Yeah, I agree with Heather!
Females try to be dominant and theyll end up in a fight!

omm I dont think that is true. There has been a recessive pied that is female.

Same with cockatiel just because a cockatiel is pied does not mean it is a male. laugh
