Hi everyone.
I've bought this lovely cockatiel two weeks ago, haven't chosen a name yet because I'm not sure of its sex.
They told me its a she, but its vet told me it's not possible to tell yet by looking.
Anyways, its been eating and drinking well, its about 89 grams. But sometimes makes this weird noise similar to when babies beg for food. I've uploaded a video here.
Also the male cockatiel in the video (Lutino one) plucks its hairs which I guess is because of mating denial by it. He had tried to get on it a few times but got rejected.
I'd appreciate your suggestions, and thoughts. Thank you.

That sound you hear is very normal. ALL young cockatiels make that nose for a couple of months (or more) after they,ve hatched. They are basically begging for food.
