Just stopping by with a vote for you....
Today I will talk about "Is my cockatiel a Male or a Female". Immature grey cockatiels have yellow stripes under the primary wing feathers.A male loses these stripes around 9 months of age.Head and facial markings are brighter on males.Color mutations(lutino,pied,pearl)may not exhibit the same gender differences in feather pattern.Vocalization is the earliest means of sexing cockatiels.The male has a melodious call,The females have more of a monotonous chirp.Cockatiels are prolific year-round breeders.Their offspring are easy to hand-raise, but are reluctant to wean.Also many people would rather have their Veterinarian do a DNA test to be sure what the sex of their Cockatiel is.Tomorrow I will be talking about the many different mutations of the Cockatiel and what you Vet looks for in a healthy Cockatiel...Have a nice day...With many birdie wing hugs to you....Sam :o)
