    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I got ET as a rescue. So I have no idea how old he is. Recently his eyes have started drooping and he's balding more behind his crest which I know is super common in lutinos.

    Today I got a very pretty (and big!) lutino. I am not really sure if it's a boy or a girl, and I hope soon I'll be able to determine the sex based on behaviour.

    This post is dedicated to Cockena. This morning I found Cockena dead on the floor :'(. She had a tumor in her reproductive system that couldn't be removed. It's been there for a while.
