    Silo is really cute. I love that crest or is it topknot? I had one years ago and she was a sweetheart. Thanks for sharing her pics with us.

    Your cockatiel is really cute!
    Do you already know if it's a boy a or a girl? How are this noises? They are like shouts or whistle?
    If they're like whitles, it's a male. ut i guees it itsn't whitle yet, because he is really young. They use to start whistling at 12-15 weeks.

    Just a detail: you cockatiel is a Gray split pied
