My cockatiel I just got has a bright yellow face and bright red cheeks but has spots and different coloration under his tale and wings plus He was said to be an 8th month old male is he a boy?
It is probably a male, as the males have bright colors and is much more colorful than the female. look at his/her tale to see if there is bars across it, and if it mimics or talks its most likely a malee. but the way you described your cockatiel it sounds like a male with the yellow and red cheeks. :)
Depending on the coloration of your individual cockatiel, a wild coloration male will have brighter cheek patches. Females tend to have dull orange, while males will have a deep red or red orange circle on their cheek. If you have lutinos, pearls, and pieds, this can be a difficult way to determine gender, and you are better off having your bird DNA sexed by a veterinarian. I hope I'm adding my two cents correctly here…
What is the sex of a pearl cockatiel that is grey with white spots a yellow mohawk and orange cheeks?
Answer Cuts the glare of the sun or bright lights. I believe that this was first started my American motorcycle racers such as Gene Romero in the 1970s. When wearing a dark visor in bright sunlight, you can see your cheeks reflected off the inner surface. American footballers probably adopted it as warpaint.
They are very playful birds. Most of them have orange cheeks, except for albino cockatiels. Albino cokcatiels have all white feathers and red eyes. The most common cockatiel is the common grey, which is grey except for its cheeks(orange), wings(the bottom part is white), sometimes heads(if male, yellow-whitish), and the tail(if female, will have yellow stripes across the bottom.
Yes bright rosy cheeks are a common indicator of future new teeth. You can also expect a sudden case of diarrhea, chapped mouth, chin and neck if excessive drooling is occurring. All will pass with the eruption of those first teeth. Just try and keep your baby comfortable while teething is occurring.
