3. His it a male or female?

The only way to know for sure is to do a dna test (or find an egg in the cage).  We have not had a dna test done.  However the person who had him before said he was a male and the vet felt that that was correct from some minor characteristics.  We do not plan on breeding Barney at any point so ultimately it is not important to know for sure.  Most Amazon Parrots are Sexually monomorphic, that is males and females look the same.
