Re: Molting

Cooks’ plumage and appearance really shouldn’t change much now that she is around 3-ish (and I’ll stick with she just for now) It’s great that she enjoys a misting of water whichever way it comes. She will let you know when she’s not in the mood, I’d say you’d have noticed that already

Re: Molting

I'm quite sure that Cooks is a male. He is a common pearl Cockatiel, and is over a year old, so just by looking at her tail feathers there is no doubt that he's a male. I wish I was at home right now, I'd take a photo of my pearl Cockatiel who is a female. It's quite obvious when they are females, and Cooks definitely shed all of his young plumage and grew-in adult male plumage.
