the pearl marking are the markings on the back of the wings so he cant be pied. (still has the pearls now and over 7 months old)

my bird looks extremley like the bird described as (as well as the bird on the second page): 
Heavier marked Pearl on more extensive 
Cinnamon ground color


so I'm guessing s/he is heavier marked is all and there are variants, either way she definitely has cinnamon colouring (or at least not the usual grey shade and she certainly has pearls)


you can't really tell gender from looks,since mutation females rae brightly coloured as well
this bird still confuses me because he does not have a whistley chirp, but a harsh one like a female but he also tries to copy tunes in chirps rather than whistles so no idea whats going on with this bird to be honest!

beautiful coloring on her. the grey is a bit light to be pied, so I think she has a closer chance of being cinnamon, the tail is also very very light to be pied so I think she's a cinnamon.

she's so pretty though! is she chirping much yet or is she still a bit shy?

I had one when I was little, but I would stick pencils and toys in the cage since I didn't know any better, and we ended up having to give her away. (Now that I think about it though, I think ours was a male XD We named him Rosy lol)

I looked up the difference between males and females. It says:

"Pearls --are dimorphic after their first molt. Pearls are gray, brownish or yellow, birds with speckled white markings that look like pearls. Male birds will lose their pearl markings, usually after their first molt. After the first molt males will have yellow or white faces. Female birds will have faces that are gray or brownish. "

Because s/he's so light in colour, maybe s/he's a lutino crossed with a pied? ;v;

WHO KNOWS.

Okay, so I really want a bird now. S/he's so cute! Any suggestions for a good bird? And breeder/petstore?

:iconmechanicalmasochist:
mechanicalmasochist Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would suggest breeder all the way! since i have only had problems lately with pet stores (selling my sick rats and telling me milkshake and kes were both female when it turns out milkshake is a boy)
plus its way cheaper to buy from a breeder
this gal here cost me 17.50 we offered the guy to keep the change to make it a straight 20 and he refused.

not to mention if your bird turns out to be sick or unhealthy breeders always garentee you cans witch the bird or bring it back (plus nothing beats walking in to an aviary)

also if you don't want a bird right away you can ask a breeder to hand tame your bird from a young age so it is used to people
plus you get many more colour choices from a breeder without the more expensive price tag.


so yes.

though I live in the UK so i don't know how much good it would be to tell you the name of the breeder i bought from XD

Thank you so much! I got a baby guinea pig from a petstore a while ago and she ended up dying less than a year after we got her. I know they are two completely different animals(I mean, one's fat, the other can fly.)

After hearing about what happened with Milkshake and Kes, I really don't trust pet stores that much. I do have a problem though. I don't think there are any aviaries in the U.S...

Any way, thanks for replying! <3

yeah pet stores tend not to care where there animals come from...

but there should be plenty of bird breeders in the US!

just search online for them in your local area or go into a local pet store (one you can trust/one that does not sell live animals) and ask if they can give you any numbers thats how I got on the path to finding a breeder!

expensive?
she cost me 17.50

not sure how much that is in dollars but its not bad at all for a price though if you buy from a pet store it can cost 35.00+

I bought her direct from a breeder, you could always look up breeders if you want a bird with a fair price they don't charge high prices at all :3

17.50? HOLY CRAP.

My boyfriend got a hand-reared Lutino Cockatiel from the petstore and it cost him 80.00........ 8'I

yeah, the breeder as telling me he sells his birds to pet stores and they often tack 10-20 pound on to the asking price,

So if you go to a breeder you will give you a much better deal, that and you can ask them to tame a bird from a young age so its friendly
sadly I didn't have this option since my bird was a birthday gift overdue I simply chose from youngsters that were ready, but having tamed birds before its not such a big deal :3 (even if this moody one currently hates me)

OH, I see. ;v;

When I have space, I'm planning to get a Green Cheek Conure or a Cockatiel; the petstore I go to hand rears them and they're VERY cuddly, which is worth the extra money... But GCC are like... 140 if I remember correctly. ene

thank you, she is a pearl, they always have wonderful feather markings ^^
well I've only had her 4 days and she came straight out an avairy so she is not so good with handling now

though when tame, tiels are meant to be very human friendly , so i will have to get back to you on that :3
