If I had to guess, I'd say a male because of the lack of barring on the chest. Because of the mutation I'm not sure though. I'm sure some better pics from different angles would help the experts though.

Hello Jenlouisee and welcome to Totally Tiels :welcome: Your tiel is a very pretty pied whiteface. But due to it being pied, you can't visually sex it. Do you know how old it is?

Hi jenlouisee, I was was right when I answered your other post in the gender section, your lovely tiel is either a male or female, lol. Does he whistle nicely and sing if so he is likely to be a boy, if it just makes a monotone short whistle it is likely to be a girl, but age will make a difference as young birds may not have started to sing properly. My two tiels are still under 6 months and I'm not sure yet what sex they are. What I do know for certain is they are great fun and company and my grand children love them.

Thanks guys. He/she is about 10 weeks old.
The kids at work already in love with Pepper.
Pepper makes a lot of noise in short bursts.

I think at 10 weeks old he is only a baby and as for boy or girl it's going to be a waiting game and looking out for any tell tale signs of gender, but I've had mine about 3 months now and I'm still not sure.

Oh my, what a beauty!!! I have always thought the all gray ones were some of the prettiest. And Pepper is such a perfect name! :whiteface:

Hi Jenlouisee, now that you've had Pepper for a while now, is there any update on his/her behaviour? Does Pepper chatter a lot or whistle tunes or mimic other sounds around like a telephone ring? Any changes in his/her appearance? And any new pics?
