my cockatiels feathers are growing back in different colors than when they fell out is this common? a sign of aging? any ideas? ust curious thanks she is a cinnamon pearl but alot of the feathers around her wings are growing in white she is 4 years old this has never happened. I'm not freaking out just very curious if it is do to diet or something

Re: cockatiel molting

When we first got Gemini, he was nearly all white, as he has gone through a moult, the feathers have come back in as grey, I think we mess about with their colours that we can never be sure they will stay the same. Gemini is a little older than Misty now. I really don't think its anything to do with diet it seems to be a common thing with tiels of different colouring. Not sure why
