Thank's Deb. I can't wait to see what he look's like after a molt or two...not that it matter's, he is a sweet little guy.Shiloh is such a handsome guy.
It looks like Soterion is thinking that Shiloh might make a good friend even if he is a little bigger than the rest of the flock.
Thank you sister. I am sure Shiloh would value Indi's friendship...Shiloh is so beautiful looks like he has made a friend for life. Indi will be his friend he is Molting to.
Thank you Dee. To be honest, I haven't let him spend a lot of time with them yet. He has been around them about 7 or 8 times, for maybe 15 minutes. I am going to give him more time with them in the future though...You have a very handsome boy right there! It seems like he is getting along with the budgies.
Thank you Li...you'll still be a budgie girl if you have a tiel or two...Shiloh is looking regal even in full moult. I am even tempted to rush out and get me a tiel. But no, I am staying a budgie girl :laugh:
Thank you Juhi...Yes, all tiel have the spikes, or crest's. Some longer and nicer than other's, but they all have them...wooaaaaah... What a beautiful boy Shiloh is... Very handsome. Love the spikes... DO all the tiels have such a hair do? I find it fascinating.
Yes, they told me he was about 4 months when I got him. Time does fly...thank you Ana...6 months old already, time does fly! Your Shiloh is growing up beautifully, he is such a cutie.
Thank you Kate. I did notice that tail thing too. When I first got him the tail was barred all the way down almost, and slowly as the old have fallen out and new start to grow, the bars are gone. I will be looking under his wings later today. He is such a sweet bird, I really don't care what sex or how the appearance turns out....Randy it is pretty easy to tell the sex of a normal coloured Cockatiel, normal greys, normal cinnamon, normal whiteface etc. Just look under the wings and if the spots go right up to the equivalent of the armpit it is a girl if they only go to the equivalent of the elbow or halfway it is a boy. He does look like a boy as from the new tail feather I can just see in the picture it is a solid colour and the flecked tail feather is the last of the juvenile tail feathers to drop. Females retain the flecked tail feathers and the males have solid colour. From the picture it is possible that he is carrying pied.
Lovely bird with a really good thick crest.
Thank you Kim....gonna be having a peek under his wing's later today....Yep Kate hit it on the nose,I helped sex my best friends tiels...by looking at the spots under the wings,half way up boy, all the way girl...he is a very gorgeous boy and he knows it
