Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this if it is I apologize.
I have 5 tiles and I've had a hard time sexing them.
The one on the right I think is a male, then my dove, I'm not 100% sure on the two Whiteface pied but I think the white one on the left is a female and the one on the right is a male. The one right after the white faces I think is a female for the dots under her wings but this recent moult brought yellow and grey times to get face. The one on the Far-right, I thought was a male but was unsure.
Anything helps, I'm sorry for the picture it was the only one I could catch of them.
Thank you all.

Unfortunately, the picture is too small, and I can't zoom up on it. Is there any way you could blow up the picture so it is bigger?

[If its still too blurry I can try to get a better-focused one tomorrow, I've tried to enlarge them separately.

It's definitely better; thanks! If it is possible to get separate pictures though, that would be great. First of all, do you know the age of any of them? For the first pic, visually sexing a pied is the hardest to do. Depending on the age, you could probably tell by how he/she acts, and that could determine what he/she is. Otherwise, I would just DNA him/her just to make sure. For the second and third pictures, are they both whiteface pied? If so, I would just DNA them as well since they have pied. In the fourth pic, he/she is another pied so a DNA test would be best. And for the last pic, that is for sure a male since normal grey females don't have bright yellow faces. Sorry if I wasn't too much of a help, but I find the pied mutations are the hardest to tell. I can insert a link for you about pied cockatiels, and you can see if you can find anything interesting from there if you want.
