(Homomorphic) Some Cockatiels can be dimorphic or homomorphic depending on the mutation. Dimorphic meaning Male Cockatiels and Female Cockatiels don’t look the same. Homomorphic meaning Male Cockatiels and Female Cockatiels can look the same. To differentiate Male and Female dimorphic mutation Cockatiels there are several indications, first dimorphic indication being that Male Cockatiels can lose the white/yellow spots & baring pattern underneath the flight and tail feathers becoming one solid color. While Female Cockatiels keep their white/yellow spots & baring pattern underneath the flight and tail feathers. The second dimorphic indication is Males face or spot on face can become brighter, while Females face or spot on face can become duller. Third dimorphic indication being back pattern, such as the Pearly Pied Mutation Cockatiel. Pearly Pied Males lose full patterning on back, while Pearly Pied Females stay the same as age progresses into maturity. To differentiate Male and Female homomorphic mutation Cockatiels there are several indications also. First homomorphic indication being pelvic checking. Male Cockatiels two pelvic bones can be very close together with a very small gap, while Female Cockatiels two pelvic bones can be wide open. Second homomorphic indication is vocalization, Male Cockatiels will be more vocal especially when maturity is reached and Female Cockatiels will be more timid in vocalization. Third homomorphic indication is personality, Male Cockatiels can have a more confident personality and Female Cockatiels can have a more timid personality.
