Sexing Society Finches

Question: I've tried to get some info on how to sex  society finches. What is the best method?


C1: DNA sexing is a guarantee, but visual sexing sometimes difficult. Males will puff up and sing, so you can catch and separate, and then wait and check again. C2: The beak of a male is broader and heavier, and there is a difference in the width of the head. The male has a higher, domed crown whilst the female has a flatter crown. C3: There is no 100% visual way to sex them. Some breeder swear by the shape on the underside of the beak or where the eye is located. I have tried both on my society finches. About sexing a bird through eye locations look the representation for canaries...> C4: If you have a lot of the same color that are hard to tell apart. Use colour plastic bands and when you see one sing write down the band colour. C5: You can also listen to their contact call. The hens have a clear 'R' sound in their call. The sound is like a cricket.
Definition: cricket A cricket is an insect related to the grasshoppers. More definitions you find in Birds2u Database
