Hi. If everything goes as planned, I’ll be getting this little guy/girl later this week from a local pet store. They don’t have much information about the bird besides that it’s under a year old, but from what I’ve been reading online, I’m thinking they’re maybe a pearl and I’m thinking female? Thoughts and opinions about what morph / sex they might be because I’m not sure and new to cockatiels (I’ve had several parakeets throughout my life, but never any cockatiels) Thanks!

It looks like a cinnamon pearl. As for sex, I'm not quite sure about that. Female pearls keep their pearly mutation throughout their lives while male pearls most usually lose their pearly mutation. If the cockatiel has already gone through its first molt, then it is for sure a female. She/he is very adorable nonetheless! 🥰 I will show you a pic of my cinnamon pearl so you can see if they look alike.
