This is an genetically produced mutation. Pear cockatiels can be either male or female, but only females retain their "pearls" or spots throughout their feathering. This particular one is a female cinnamon pear cockatiel, Named Westley. I purchased her at 12 weeks old. Her feathering ls light with a lot of yellow, and her eye color is a red-brown rather than the usual black. In the wild cockatiels are uniformly grey, meaning that Westley's mutation has been bred to be prominent through selective breeding This also distinguishes her as pet.
