Introducing .........cockatiel and budgie ! :biggrin5:

2 days ago , my friends took me to a pet store and asked me to choose a bird of my liking since they didn't get me anything for my birthday. So I chose this beautiful male whitefaced cockatiel . While we were leaving , I had a glance at the budgie cage where I saw this white little budgie hopping around . I somehow managed to convince my friends to buy her as well and I ended up coming home with 2 new birds on the same day .
Here are a few pics of them. Sorry for the poor quality , I took the pics from my phone and the birds weren't being cooperative at all . I think the budgie is a dominant pied cinnamon spangle skyblue/cobalt violet ...that was a long one . The cockatiel is just amazing ;hes surprisingly unafraid for a pet store bird. Hes already acting like hes been with me for a month . He isn't hand tame but doesn't freak out if bring my hands to the cage. Oh and hes already learning to whistle , I'm trying to teach him the song from 'the good , the bad and the ugly' :P.

I think your budgie is a double factor dominate pied. Whiteface tiels are one of my fav cockatiel mutations.

I didn't know theres a double factor dominant pied mutation at all . Her pied markings look exactly the same as my other pied budgie , except for the colour and wing patterns. I think i got lucky with her , violet and spangle are my 2 favourite mutations and she came with both .
The cockatiel learnt how to wolf whistle in a day . I think I have a potential singer .

I'd like to breed another wf lutino one day.

I've never seen a pure white cockatiel in real life ! They must be beautiful .
I quite like the whiteface pearl cockatiels as well , I almost got one instead of mine but I noticed that she didn't seem that healthy so I picked the normal whitefaced male.
