so.......
which one has mated with the grey female?:)
Do you know if the grey female is split for anything (if she has a white spot on the back of her head she would be split for pied)
It is very hard to predict an outcome as you would need to know exactly what the birds are split for but you can give it a go over here:

I have a breeding pair of tiels and my male was split for pearl which I didn't know.
Nice surprise to say the least as I ended up with a pearl baby but also a stunning pied pearl baby (have kept both plus another pied, they're all boys so lots of noise in my aviary ;))

The last tiel looks like a normal grey to me, is he young still?
He might still be colouring up in his face............
The white one is a whiteface pied I would say, very pretty.
I am not a real expert on mutations though so don't quote me on the whiteface pied mutation ;)

............is that budgie in with the breedin pair by the way?
Might be best to remove budgie :)
Also, if these are pet cockatiels, they unfortunately do not always make the best parents so tell your brother to be prepared.
He might need to have some handrearing formula on standby but please please please get him to get advice first from a vet before he attempts to handrear if he has never done it before.

oh no the budgie is not in with them..although another tiel is..ive tried to tell Gavin (brother) to take him out but he wont listen to me, he sais that im being too protective and he sais ''how do they breed in the wild..they breed in groups'' but as i tell him its different in a cage.
the white (lotus) is mating with female (chip)..as slappy is only young.
also ive tried to tell him to be prepared for the worst and that he may need to hand feed but once again he wont listen to me:( atlease ive done research about breeding my budgies..he thinks that they will just mate, have chicks, feed them, them fledge...which it is not that simple.

i really wish i could get thorugh to him:(
