How do know a gender of a bird?

I’m a teenager who’s looking forward to start breeding birds as a hobby, lovebirds, fischers, budgies, conures and so on. What is a simpler way to know the gender of the bird without a DNA test??

    Start doing some research. You should pick an easy breeding type of bird to start out on, get some experience before moving on to higher priced birds. The parrot types ( budgie, conure, lovebird, cockateil etc) will have to be hand fed, that's what most people want, a tame hand fed bird. Hand feeding takes practice, you need to read up on that and talk to someone with experience before you try to do it). Birds are all different, some are visually sexually dimorphic, some are not. The ones that are not can sometimes be determined by behavior. But some must be determined by a dna test. All depends on the type of bird.

    Budgies can be checked with their cere(their nose) if brown and slightly crusty looking they are a female and are broody. Males have a blue cere.

    If you can't do your basic research you will NEVER be successful.

    Foolish, foolish plan - unless you have tons of money and a lot more knowledge than you appear to have.
