Thanks!!! I thought this was the case too.They look like pearl to me. The father must be a pearl or split to pearl in order for you to have pearl chicks. Also, they will be females due to genetics.
Thanks - this info is so informative! Still trying to wrap my head around how the genetics work! I can't see any pearls on the lutino mum - she's just solid yellow. I've just taken the last chick out to hand rear (I only had three out before) the grey is much much lighter than the other three! I'll post a photo below.I just thought of it right now, but do you know if your lutino cockatiel has pearls?
So all of the crests are a mix of yellow and grey (some have more grey and some have more yellow).When the crest was coming in on your chicks, was it yellow or grey? I'm asking because I have two chicks in the nest, and they both have grey crests coming in.
Ohh your Meringue is gorgeous!! So they have a few more feathers now - three look really similar (normal pearl) and one looks a bit different. I’ve noticed the grey is much lighter and she(?) also has pink feet - all the others have darker feet. The female (mum) of these guys has a yellow tail -the tail isn’t actually that colour haha I think it was just dirty in the photo!Okay, thanks! I'll have to wait and see as the feathers grow in on my chicks to see if they're pearls or not, then. Sebastian is definitely not a cinnamon whiteface which means if your one chick is a cinnamon pearl, then Sebastian is split to cinnamon. And yes, the one on the bottom right definitely looks like she is cinnamon. Daisy looks just like my lutino, Meringue.
