  1. Are my tiels split to any mutations?

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    Hi, first time posting here. We got our two lovely tiels, Snow and Jaina, a year ago at around 3 months old. They are a little over a year old now, and have gone through their first molt. I was wondering if they might be split to any mutations, as I've heard that a pure normal grey tiel is...
  2. Mutations

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the genetics of my birds based on offspring, such as what recessive genetics the parents may and also identify any in the babies as I am no good at it. I know that the dad is pearl already (split or visual I couldn't say), the mother is a WF cinnamon...

  5. Need help identifying mutations

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    Hi! I have a couple of tiels that just started nesting for their second time. The female is a WF Pearl and the male seemed like a Clear Pied at first because I can't see red in his eyes no matter how close I look or even if I direct some light at it. However, out of the 4 babies that were born...
  6. What genders are these babies?

    Cockatiel Breeding
    I'm getting 2 four week old cockatiels on Monday. The breeder told me they're both female, but I don't think she had them DNA sexed, so I'm not sure. As far as I can tell, both parents are split pied, the mama is cinnamon and the dad is a normal grey split lutino. I know he's split lutino...

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    if you could create any sort of cockatiel mutation, what would it be? i was playing around in photoshop and quickly came up with these. rather un-natural, but quite striking (in my opinion!)
  11. Lutino what now?

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    So I've always known I've loved lutinos and known that's what I wanted. I was looking up about lutinos and never knew you could have so many different mutations. But I was wondering if Skye was just a plain lutino or a lutino pearl or lutino whatever (I know males usually loose the pearl after...
  12. What ARE my tiels anyway?

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I have a female lutino and a normal grey male. They had three babies, two grey males and one cinnamon female. So i'm wondering if this means the father is split to cinnamon and if the grey babies are split lutino? What about the cinnamon female? Do we know anything about the mother? I heard that...
  13. A question for Australian fellow members

    Cockatiel Talk
    I was reading an article about wild parrots learning to speak new words from parrots who were previously pets, escaped in the wild and joined a flock. This made me think of other possible consequences, like breeding. So I was wondering: will escaped ex-pet cockatiels in Australia, if they are...

    Hey everyone, long time since I posted here. After my parents visited me and Ludwig, they got a tiel of their own! Could anyone help me (and my parents) with his/her mutation? The photo is a bit dark, and doesn't show the little specks of white on the back of his/her head, the small yellow...

    Cockatiel Breeding
    I bought a pair of Cockatiels that I know nothing about other than what I can see. I've raised birds for years, but also been out a few years. I purchased a heavy pied male and a whiteface/Pied hen. The first clutch, my only baby came out as a Cinnamon pearl and my first baby from the second...

  20. Whiteface Lutino vs. Albino = same thing?

    Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I read that a Whiteface Lutino is an all-white Cockatiel. Is it genetically the same thing as an Albino or are they separate mutations, that both produce all-white birds? Is either variety preferable in terms of health and "robustness"?
