  2. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    My supposedly both female (DNA tested!) pair of cockatiels had babies. Mother (she's pearl): Father: Babies: Parents both have the red reflective eye of cinnamons. They both have to be pearls since all the babies are pearls. There is a whiteface baby so parents should both be split...

    Hello, I recently acquired a 3 month old handfed cinnamon pearl cockatiel, at least that’s how the pet described it. One of my issues is that rainbow is struggling to get around in his cage, is it normal? Is it going to get better?

    Hey! I'm extremely new to this site so bear with me haha. I have a confirmed female cockatiel, a little older than a year. She has this pearling under her wings. Note that the entire underside of the wings (minus primary and secondary flight feathers) is covered in pearling. Does this mean she...

    Hi ya, everyone, I would like to show you all pictures of my baby Stitch. He is not my first bird, I did have cockatiels while I was growing up. Though sadly when it was time for me to go to college, and unable to protect them from my sister's bird I had to do the heartbreaking move to rehome my...

    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...

    I'm not entirely certain just how a male cockatiel lose their pearls. Do they lose the pearl spots in a single molt at maturity? Or is it gradual process over several molts/years? I ask because one of my birds, Benny, is a pied-pearl. We don't know exactly how old he is. He's we adopted him...

  13. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    Okay, so I have discovered that no matter what we say about indications that a cockatiel is male or female based on marking, you never know until you DNA sex it! I walked into a bird store yesterday evening on my search for a male cockatiel that is split to whiteface and pearl, and found a...
  14. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I have a chance to buy a beautiful pearl. The father is a pearl with no visual splits and her mother is a normal, split to pied( I'm assuming, since she has a large yellow spot on her neck.). I'm fairly sure since the father was the pearl the bird is a female. My question is can the mother's...

  18. 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...
  19. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    I have heard that males lose their pearl but not completely. This absolutely confuses me. My bird who I'm seriously hoping is a male is showing more female characteristics. He/she is 2 years old. By looking can you tell the sex?

    Help me pick a new name for my little princess! :love: The reason I chose these 3 names: Buttercup - She has a lot of light yellow on her and I just love buttercups! Plus who doesn't love The Princess Bride, Princess Buttercup?! Lacey - The pearl markings on her reminds me of scalloped lace...
