I know males will sing.
I know a mature male will show more intense yellow color.
I know about the bib for females.
I know juveniles will have a bib for males and females.
What puzzles me right now is will Hens feed each other???

I have 4 Green Singers and all have the bib. None of them sing like a male. But 1 of them is feeding another. Can someone tell me if this is normal behavior for hens or is it possible I have a cock.

Thanks
Garry

I still believe you have females, but because there are no males around they feed each other. I don't keep mature females together, because they become aggressive if they hear the presence of males.

Thanks Ikhom for your advice. I have witnessed this aggression. I do have 1 confirmed male that I keep in a separate room. So in all I have 1 Male and 4 Females. Males are so hard to come by here in Texas. I was forced to buy online. I have 3 males on order from "The Finch Farm" http://www.thefinchfarm.com They will be DNA tested to ensure they are males.

As I can see you have successfully bred GS I hope you don't mind if I pick your brain from time to time to get started.
Will they breed with 2 pairs in a flight. Please view my pics and offer any advice. Center Row. 4.5 Feet By 14 inches tall. Not sure the pics are attached properly. I will try to upload separately. Might be too big.

Thanks for your time and Thanks for a great site. If you choose not to do this site anymore will we loose all of our data? Will we ever be able to purchase a license?

Thanks
Garry

No, you can't keep two pairs in the same flight. They will kill each other. Females could become very aggressive. I keep my females alone or with other species or they will fight even without a male in the cage with them.
