    Nice, mine was very cautious and abit scared too at first but getting them to eat is an excellent start. Within only a few weeks mine started? coming out of its cage itself and got to accept me as its family so they are very sociable creatures. Still going 2 years now shes still a real joy to be living with even though shes being a pain in the ass right now pulling my facial hair out lol.

    He was generally shaken up on the first? day which is very normal but when it comes to millet i dont think any bird resists :p. After this i just kept his cage door open and put millet on the outside of his cage and i just went about doing my thing so he could explore himself.

Cockatiel Mutations: Pearl

pearl pied harlequin cockatiel

The pearl cockatiel is identified by its pearl markings which are usually found on the back, nape and wings. They have scallop-like feathers and have established the third mutation of the cockatiel species. It is significant to note that the pearl in their body is an effect of feather pattern changes, not a color change. The pearl cockatiel has many nicknames: the pearled cockatiel, laced cockatiel, pearly tiels, pearly cockatiel, pearl tiels and opaline cockatiel. The part of their body where the wings, nape and back feathers are edged or laced with the yellow or white color is called pearling. There are both deeply pearled and lightly pearled birds.

Cockatiel color mutations include: cinnamon, fallow, lutino, normal grey, pearl (opaline), pied, silver, whiteface (albino). Cockatiel color cross-mutations include: cinnamon-pearl, cinnamon-pearl-pied, cinnamon-pearl-whiteface, dominant silver-whiteface, lutino-whiteface (albino).
