    new baby tiel update + weird question

    as some of you may know, about a week ago i brought home my third tiel, a little grey that was just weaned.
    i'm really wondering if it's a boy or a girl and HOPING for a girl! so i'll just call her "she" for now. she's doing really well and is as sweet as can possibly be. she's already switched to zupreem pellets and is starting to pick at veggies. she makes little chirping, "cheep cheep!" noises that are absolutely adorable (but is usually quiet) and she loves to cuddle.
    i still haven't named her! it's a really hard choice and i have to think of a pretty much unisex name since i still have no clue of her gender.
    anyway, here's my question...she has a really cute little pink beak...will it stay pink? or is that just a characteristic of a young bird? both my other birds are greys and they have greyish beaks.
    thanks!

    ps - i'm going to borrow my dad's digital camera and take some pics, so hopefully i'll have some up soon!

    My bird's beak was pink when she was younger but is now grey. What color are her toenails? That can sometimes be an indicator........

    Can't wait to see the pics!!

    her feet are grey and pink, and her toenails are dark grey.

    it would be really cute if her beak stayed pink!

    i just decided to name him/her coco! i used to have a chocolate lab named coco (RIP), and this bird is so sweet and gentle it reminds me of her.

    thanks for asking that question. My Monty has a pink beak - he's 3 months old & I too wondered if it would change. Coco is a lovely name

    Sure is a great name, and unisex. I decided my male was to be called Angel and unisex too in case he (lol) laid an egg. Over 14months I have had him now and none.
