    wow he looks nearly identical to my storm.
    I am guessing and from what i have been told he is a cinnimon cross white face.

    Beautiful baby. Congrats. I think your guess is correct. Not an expert on color, but looks that way to me.

    Hi I truely think what you have is a Whiteface single factor Dominant Silver which is sometimes bred with the whiteface(which it should not have) but it happens(irresponsible breeders) causing the bird to look Cinnamon in color. Because this bird probably has whiteface bred in to him/her it changes the genetic code in such birds and do to that they(whiteface) and the single factor dominant silver or could be recessive silver do to your bird being so light but that is because their is the whiteface gene here which will do that to this type of cockatiel. I have a couple of pictures of some birds that I will include. Note: these are not mine someone sent them to me.

    This is the second one,

    That baby could have some Silver in him or be a very light Cinnamon. I have one Cinnamon (sometimes I wonder) thats rather light. His breeder said he has some Silver in him and the chicks hatched about 8 months ago from the same sire and different dam look exactly like Keiths except no red eyes.
    Tiels: Janeeva (Lutino Pied), Rahz (Cinnamon), Peter (Pearl), Micah (Grey), Kiz (Cinnamon Whiteface)
    Budgies: Sprite (Light Green Recessive Pied), Rosella (Violet Opaline)
    Equines: Ramblin' Rose (Running QH), Life's Shadow (Appendix)
    Felines: Nicki (Silver Tabby), Eliza (Maine Coon) and Orion (Calico)
    Canines: Asher (Border Collie/Heeler)

    yep the cinnamon whiteface combo is heavenly
    i particularly love the cinnamone whitefaced pearls...
    the only pearls i really like actually
    and i know that the boys usually lose the pearl markings so i dont think ill get one

    i love the fallow birds too..but never have been keen on the red eye in any animal//kinda makes me feel gushy thinking that im looking at blood vessels ....eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek ( u know when someone has a broken capillary in their eye and it looks so grossly sore that u wince!)
