Hey guys. Haven't posted in a while. So I am purchasing a cockatiel about 2 hours away. I was sent pictures and was told it was a female pearl through vent sexing. I know males will lose their Pearl's but is this a young male stating to lose his Pearl's or a female who's Pearl's arent full? Thank you

There's no way to tell, and pelvic bone sexing is unreliable. Do you know what color the bird's mother was? If mom was not pearl then this bird is definitely female. If mom was pearl, this bird could be either sex.
