Thanks everyone! I haven't had much time to post their photos and updates; school and work has been eating my free time:( Will try to be more active :)
Juhi, some cockatiel mutations are easy to tell gender. For example:
Normal greys - after the first molt, young males develop a yellow head whilst females keep greyish heads.
Lutinos - males lose their orange/yellow barring under the wings and tails and females don't.
Pearls - males lose their pearls as they molt, and females always keep them.
Cockatiel behavior is a good indicator of the gender. Males are typically more vocal, learn to whistle and chat a lot whilst females are pretty quiet. Males will do these "bat wings" - when they want to show off for females. They also "beak bang". :)

Thank you Miss Deb and Miss Despina! Candy spent hours styling that beautiful crest of hers and wrestling with the curlers :D
And Tony, well, he thinks he is just adorable with his rough "macho" looks :laughing:
