    Wink Any guesses on what mutation would the baby be?

    Hi everyone

    Say hello to our new unnamed family member.
    Can anyone with experience guess what mutation the baby will be? I know it'll be a whiteface as both mum and dad are one but what would it look like?
    Here are the photos of parents and the baby

    Awww!! The baby is precious. Looking at the picture of mom and dad, I think this baby will look like mom. She is a cinnamon pearl pied whiteface. She is beautiful! I love the pearlies! A beautiful mutation.

    Go to a website called The National Cockatiel Society. There you will find all mutations. Also, try Australia Cockatiel Society. That site too has great info on mutations.

    I would love to see updates of your baby to see what he or she will look like in a few weeks. I suspect this baby is a female, but it is far too early to know as yet! Enjoy all three of them! Watching parents take care of the baby will be soooo special and cool!!

    Mother is gorgeous! Let's see what we get. I tried mutation apps but I don't understand half of it. To be completely honest, as long as they're happy and healthy, I am happy with that.
    We had another one the next night hatched after 17 days. Parents are feeding them well and we can already see them grow. Here's a little clip of them.

    Awww! They grow so fast. In a few weeks I will be able to give you a possible mutation, once they are all feathered! Thanks for the sweet video!

    Awww!! They are sooooo precious. Looking very healthy too! Looking at the picture, to me, the one on the right side of the picture looks like it may have more white fluff down than the other. Just a notion of mine. In another week or two they will be more feathered. Thanks for sharing the pic. We will watch for updates! You are doing an awesome job caring for them.
