baby greys and females have grey through their faces but in males that is moulted out in the first moult around 6 months...its really hard to say with tiels as each one is different...but if you keep working with him....talking calmly and moving quietly as well as using treats like millet sprays as has been mentioned on many posts (i haven't had to tame a tiel so im just taking from what ive learnt from others experiences)....hoping over time he will learn to trust and love you.....it could take a short time or a very long time...you just have to stick at it and work with him everyday..that is what i would do at least....u just CAN'T rush a bird.....he will do what he wants when he is ready.....but at worst...at least you know that no doubt he would be alot happier with you not being treated badly.....just take it day by day and show him he can trust you...tahts my to cents anyway :p

LOL @ chasing mouse cursor. One of my 5 week old babies loves to chase it as well.

He's very pretty, congrats. (is this your first 'tiel?)

Awe, he must keep you good company then.

They are such sweeties, your 'tiel sounds like he is a devil but an angel at the same time. (like a few of mine) ;)
