Re: What gender are my Cockatiels?

I'd say that they are all females!

The middle one being pied does make it more difficult, but I also see pearl feathers... meaning she's pearl pied. You have a higher chance of having visual pearl females than you do males. Add in the fact that the pearls are still there, even higher chance of female! Males molt out their pearls. Now, pied does, once again, "mess" with dimorphism, so the middle one could *still* be a male.


I'd say though that it's a good chance they are all girls!
