Hello everyone! I‘ve had Halo, my lutino, for about two years now. I got them young from a pet store that specialises in birds. The store owner said that Halo was a female. About a year after I’d got them, I‘d started to notice behavioural changes. They started to sing more (but less often than my male cinnamon, Friday) and showed the ”Heart Wing” (show off) pose when placed in front of the mirror. They’d also bop up and down while singing a song they made up, which my male cinnamon Friday never does. Below are some pictures of Halo.

It sounds like you have a male. No female has ever done heart wings that I know of. Also, Halo is actually a heavy pied, not a lutino. Lutinos are all yellow; if there is the slightest bit of grey on a cockatiel with yellow, it means it is pied. The reason I say heavy pied is because of the huge amount of yellow.
