Hi, guys I recently adopted a cockatiel. It’s a beautiful hand tamed pasty faced cockatiel.
I was wondering if it was a boy or girl. I think it’s a boy. I did the mirror test. But, I don’t know. So, what do I you guys think? Also, you could include any tips or tricks for cockatiel care. It’s only been a few weeks.

Thanks again in advance!

It's a cutie! It's not a colour that can be visually sexed so you'll have to go by behaviour (or get a dna test done, though I've heard of them being wrong before). Girls can be just as noisy as boys, and learn to talk just as well too, but boys have a more elaborate song they sing (that they use to show off to the ladies). They like to beak tap as part of their routine too. Hopefully that helps. If it's still young it may take awhile to be sure.

Thanks for the feedback! I heard of this mirror test that if they are interested in their reflection, it’s a boy. Anyway, I’m okay with either sex. He also does see, to like, violin music. Maybe he’s a boy? Thanks again!
