any idea if male or female? may I say a male? Will he turn grey at 7months old when he molts? or this pearl effect will stay??


Thanks guys! I will post updates every day about us!
For the first month even more I will only work for developing our relation and understand his body language :)


she is right now on my shoulder taking a nap. such cute birds :pearl:

If s/he's male his pearling will fade after his first moult. It might take a while to become noticeable but it will start to go around that time. If s/he is female, the pearling will stay the same. But you'll probably be able to tell the sex before then from behaviour, though it's not always an accurate way of telling.
Have you thought of DNA sexing? It doesn't cost much and you can do it a few ways.

S/he is very cute!!! Congratulations on you're new baby!

Your bird is still too young to sex. Usually birds start to display sex related behaviors around 6 months of age. And, if your bird is a cock, it will loses its pearls. If it's a hen, it will keep them.

And no, your bird will not turn gray. It's a cinnamon, so it's always going to stay a cinnamon :) Extreme baby cuteness!

Form a strong Bond with tweety before introducing a second bird and you should be ok. You can also use the time you need to quarantine the second bird to build a relationship with them away from tweety

Tweety is doing great! But unfortunately since that video was taken,he doesn't let me to cuddle him anymore,he just run when I try to do it or turn to warn me,otherwise he is really great stand on my shoulder play with my hair,and my facial hair.. lol he is really funny and takes napes while making sure he is laying on my neck.He is also doing something new,he is nipping and biting everything he can! wow! lol papers,wires,cables,keyboards,anything ...lol.. I am taking care to remove anything that can present for him a danger.

Also today I was eating cornflakes he precipitated to join me and eat with me haha so lovely this bird...(the corn flakes is the normal one,no added flavors.. I only let him to eat a bit not too much.. I noticed that when I am eating something he is interested into tasting it.Few days ago he was refusing to eat his boiled rice,lentils... So I ate in front of him a bit of them,and surprise he was directly interested into eating his food!
