I've noticed so many beautiful color mutations, I thought it would be fun to have them in one thread. Sweet Pea is a normal grey, she's about a year and a half old and weighs 73 grams.

Oh they're so cute! Sweetpea is a real doll, look at those eyes, what a precious face!

Grace, Jet's 'dirty face' is absolutely adorable. Do the boys ever stay like that, or will it get 'clear' as he matures?

Wow, cute birds!
This is Murzik, my handsome boy and hike buddy! You've probably seen him in my posts already. :) His dad was pure white and mom normal grey (I was told, and I saw the dad).
It's hard to see from the pics, but he has little white dots all over his chest - I just love that about his coloring. :) And with his current second molt he is turning more brown than grey for some reason...

Hey Michael, do the boys ever keep "dirty faces" or do all the mutations have a "clear" face as a mature male?

Murzik is such a handsome fellow! I love all the extra white. Is his tail solid white?

Jet is a little cutie. I think he's a normal grey and his face will be yellow when he matures? Is that right? Sweet Pea would like to meet him.

Michael, do you still have all your cockatiels?

Some of them yes, those 5 babies on the rug I still have them cause they're under training right now since the last one just recently weaned. Some are with my neighbor so I still see them.

Candy looking at yours is making me question Jets age. I got him a month ago and they said he was 3 to 5 months old.

Grace, we got told he was born early December. He was very small and had very little feathers when we got him early January. This photo is from the day we brought him home. uploadfromtaptalk1426888942704.jpg

Maybe I should have just posted one picture, but I just couldn't help it. These are all Kiko, and he is a Cinnamon mutation split to white face and pearl. I think he has Ghost Pearls on his back.

Great photos!

<3 'tiels. I am always tempted to bring a few home from the local shelter. They are just so cheery and playful.

My Lucy is a lutino. She has very dark red eyes instead of brown or black, it's a bit odd. Her beak and feet are pink.

Her tail feathers have a really pretty yellow gradient to them; the longest, innermost are pure white, and they darken into a pale yellow as the tail fans out. Each pair of tail feathers are the same shade of yellow as their mirrored partner, and each one has only one shade of yellow across the entire feather. I wish I've been quick enough to get a nice picture of her tail fanned out. It's so neat. The rest of her is almost completely white. She does have a few tufts of soft yellow "highlights" on her body, which show up much clearer when she's wet. She also has a full yellow mask.

I'm really quite fond of her plumage, if you couldn't tell. And my baby turned one today!
