LUTINO COCKATIEL 4SALE

Lutino cockatiels are known for their distinct yellow and white bodies with orange cheek patches, as well as a yellow head and mane. In young cockatiels, their eyes start off red and gradually darken as they mature. This is due to the lack of melanin pigment in the cockatiel mutation. As a result, this genetic variation allows for the expression of black, brown, and grey colors in their feathers. The hue of a cockatiel can vary from yellow to creamy white, with prominent orange cheek patches. Some individuals may also have hints of gold on their crest, sides of the face, and tail. They are characterized by their flesh-colored beak, feet, and toenails.

One of the most recognizable features of Lutino Cockatiels is their golden crest. Unlike other crested parrots, cockatiels have long tails that make up about half of their body length. While some Lutino Cockatiels may have a bare patch underneath their crest due to selective breeding processes to reduce this feature, it is not indicative of any health issues in your bird.
