Are you sure Beaker is a boy? Aren't they the bars under the wings that make 'him' a hen ? Atleast that's what my (dna tested) Cockatiel hen's wings look like underneath. Is he Pied? Perhaps it's different, one of my hens are pied, the other is like a cinnamon and white colour...?
(I love Cockatiel colour mutations :))

I never had Beaker DNA sexed, but my bird shows all the characteristics of a male. Beaker is always whistling and singing. He is always walking around with his wings away from his body and doing little hops. And the last thing that makes me think he's a boy is he rapidly drill pecks everything to show that he owns it. Females don't generally display these behaviors but do display the markings, but from all my research I am sure Beaker is male but without science I can never be 100% :cockatiel:

Chicklet, cute photo! : ) This looks like a homemade gym - can you post a picture of the whole thing? I'm just trying to get ideas for making my own.
Thanks!
