    gender?

    Ok I have a few birds that I am not sure what the sex of them are.

    I was told both are female. I had eggs show up at the bottom of the cage so I know one if not both are female. I dont hear alot out of these two. They are both tame. The previous owners told me that they were told the white one was a male but that they believed otherwise.

    I am on my way to take a few more pics so you can see them better.

    Oh wow! Your white bird is absolutly beautiful! One common factor in Cockatiels is that females will have the barring on the underside of the tail and the males will not, even latinos and birds with clear light colorings can be held up in the light or the sunshine and you can see the barring on the tail. although this does not hold true until they get to 6 or 8 months old, until then most males will also have the barrings. This is what I have learned so far. Maybe someone here can tell you more, Congradulations on your fine looking birds.

    They're beautiful!

    The lutino looks pearl, not sure you can visually sex lutinos though.

    The grey (split to pied) is female unless she's under 6 months old. Otherwise she's definitely female

    Hi kybirdlover01 ,

    Very nice birds , take well care of them

    The silver gray bird is a 100% female as females have dark faces and barrings across the tail as Liz mentioned . Your bird is adult and youn can know that by the length of the crest and the area of the orange spot on its cheek .

    The lutino pearl is hard to determine , anyway if you hear it singing chirping or whistling forming a heart shape with its wings it's definetely a male , otherwise if it just screams it's a female .

    Good Luck !
