    does he have a little thing around his leg if he dose that mean he is not fertile because the pet stores dont want you ro breed because then you wont buy the birds so they give them shots so there eggs or what ever the guys does they make sure its not fertile. SORRY TO BREAK IT TO YOU IF IT HAS BRACLET ON ITS LEG NO BABIES

    Source(s): i know some breeders which they teach me things

    If you don't know it's gender or when is the right time to breed them then you should not even bother breeding your birds.
