    What colour is my Cockatiel?

    Can anyone help me with my Cockatiel color?



    That's a photo of him above. I've looked at sites with Cockatiel colors but I couldn't find one with a picture that looked like him.
    Help please?

    Also, he's pretty fluffy and sleepy most of the time, does that mean he's sick?

    *EDIT* Sorry, I didn't think the photo would be that big!

    Try this website - http://www.cockatielfoundation.com/p...whiteface.html. I've found the Cockatiel Foundation to have some beautiful photos of tiels which have helped me identify what kind of tiels I have.

    Your bird looks like a female white face to me.

    As for fluffiness, if your bird is staying puffed up like that all the time it is a sign they are trying to keep in body heat. So either it is cold, or I would have a check up done. Fluffing up like that sometimes is fine (like when they are sleeping) but doing it all the time isn't normal.

    Re: What colour is my Cockatiel?

    Hi Trigica, You have an adorable little tiel! I agree that it appears to be a female white face. But I also see some cinnamon colored feathers, so I'm thinking it could be a cinnamon white face. I agree with Marrie concerning the puffed up and fluffiness. In my opinion it would be a good decision to take the little one to an Avian vet for a check-up. Sometimes being puffed up and fluffy can indicate an illness. Cockatiels are very good at hiding their illnesses, and can die if not treated by a vet. Thanks for posting the picture. Hope to see you around the forums. Keep us posted on how everything is going with your little one.

    Re: What colour is my Cockatiel?

    Thank you everyone for the replies.

    I guess I better start referring to "him" as a her.
    I should have known! She spends heaps of time preening. lol (Only joking. )

    I'll have a look a near by avian vets with good reputations near by, I'll be sure to take her soon.

    Thanks again.
