Hello,

I would not say mean. I would say more like hormonal at times. There hormones will flare up and they will become more protective and defensive when the eggs are layed. A teil will not give you a very bad nip, but if it is for your daughter and she has small fingers it may hurt a little more then if you get nipped.

Do the females get mean during the egg laying stage?

Hello,

There are ways to tell if they are male or female. The only way to visually tell them apart is if they are sexually mature. The males are the ones with the brite rosie cheeks. ( this is only in the grey and the latino colors.) If the ones that you are looking for are babies, the only way to tell is to have a avian vet do a DNA test. There are so many different types out there now that it is a little hard to tell anymore. Thats why I am so against cross breeding. The blood lines are so messed up because of cross breeding. I hope you get what you are looking for but the true and only way to be certain is to get the DNA test.

Well if you go with male then they wont go through the egg laying problems. Otherwise there isnt too much of a difference really!
