i will get some pics. they are all rescues. i have some past rescues and some new rescues some i have posted before but not got any answers. i believe they are all well over a year. i just want to keep separate cages to prevent unwanted babies from happening lolHow old are they, if over a year then most mutations can be visually sexed.... Got pix?
okay. hopefully someone can helpFace, front, back, and under tail should help
i don't really get where you see they are missing their pearls. one if very vocal and the other is not. i mean i have no idea thats y I'm asking. but i don't see what your sayingWell done on taking rescue tiels!
From what I see the cinnamon pearl and maybe the pied are hens. The other pearl tiels appear to be losing their pearls which is typical of males with the pearl mutation
Which sucks, because it seems like most tiels are split to pied somewhere in there. At least, that's what I've noticed in the rescue business; almost every cockatiel I've seen has been clearly split to pied or simply pied. I think we had like one or two normal greys, and the rest were all pieds or split with itAny tiel over a year that isn't a visual pied should be easy to sex visually. A pied that old can usually be sexed by behavior
Armi, in the mutation and genetics section of this forum the stickies have a list of mutations with photos which you might find helpfulI am new to tiels and have not yet grasped the technical terms you guys (and girls) are using. What are pearls? I have two birds, one I'd a grey I believe, (for obvious reasons, like it is grey) the other has a yellow head with orange checks, what is this one please? For sexing, on sits by the mirror as often as it can,the other is not bothered with mirrors, but the one who likes mirrors has a habit of going straight out like a pointer dog, emitting a low gentle cheep and I have noticed the vent vibrating on occasions. I believed the mirrors was a male thing, but the "purring" seems more female. Any help please. Also, if I am posting in the wrong place, sorry, but a bit confused with where to go. Thanks
