Midget/dwarf cockatiel *pic*

So I got a picture of all five of my cockatiels in the one place at the one time My Indian Ringneck is in the pic too. Check out my dwarf cockatiel, Lucy. She's the grey female next to the lutino. She weighs between 66-69 grams. Have you ever seen a smaller cockatiel?
P.S she is healthy and eats well/is happy I just can't explain her smallness as a lot of cockatiels are around the 100g mark.

I'd also be interested if anyone else has had experience with a midget

How interesting! I assume it's genetic dwarfism, or else her siblings would be undersized as well.

I can't say I've ever seen a dwarf bird, let alone had one, but she seems to be happy

Yes unfortunately I don't know much about her family tree as age was found on someone's door step about 4 months ago and I adopted the little one! Don't even know how old she is - I'm guessing she is quite old

I'm not an expert on cockatiels but it might be that she has some kind of deficiency that causes it.

She is so adorable! I wonder if her growth was stunted by her diet where ever she started from before being loose.
