The lab says

The breeder just told me today that my soon to be green cheek's DNA results came back and he's a boy! She also said he is officially eating pellets as of today, so it should be pretty soon!

That's so awesome! What mutation did you end up going with? So exciting 8D I can't wait to see pictures and hear all about your new little boy.

I went with a normal for my first one. I will get a mutation for baby number two later on. Hopefully he can come home within the next week or so! (I had posted before about picking the stubborn one. Apparently that is flowing into his not wanting to wean - I think the others are already weaned at their new homes.)
I'll post pics soon!

The normal ones are lovely (: Didn't know you had made your decision, I remember you mentioning the two possible choices. I went with a cockatiel with a lofty, stubborn personality for my first bird and I never regretted it. Its the personality quirks that really make them so special. He'll get there on the weaning too, just makes it all the more exciting when he finally gets to come home. Honestly, so excited for you. GCCs are just way too much fun, they have such a different feel than cockatiels, hard to explain. You'll know it immediately.

When I talked it over with the BF (I had already made my choice, but knew he'd agree, and was right) I told him my concerns about the possibility of having a tougher time training Mr. Bossy pants. His response was "he needs a home too, and you'll love him no matter what. Someone else may not."
Had to listen to my heart, not my head.

Do you have a name picked out now that you know it's a boy? I had a neutral name Pickles, picked out until I found out Miss Chanel was a female.

Mommy to Miss Kauai and Miss Chanel

Funny, I had been set on Chickpea for a girl and Musubi for a boy. I have been going over names all day and just don't know. Pickles was one of them that crossed my mind, lol! But I do still like Musubi. One, I LOVE musubi, (best food ever!) and two, it will remind me of home. But I'm sure I'll keep agonizing til he comes home!

You made the right choice. The 'stubborn' ones are the strong-hearted, the survivors and, once you win them over, they are the most loyal companions. Musubi is a great name but a bit too hard to say, I think. They find names with stronger consonants (like Ps and Chs, for example) and vowels (As and Os) easier to say - at least, that has been my experience.

Thanks! Like I said the name is up in the air, I'll keep everyone posted.
I felt the same way, stubborn but just something about him.
