    I have a minature white faced gray cockatiel who was DNA'd by
    Animal Genentics, linked with Avain Biotech and my tiel is a
    female, who does cat calls/wolf whistles all of the time. So,
    you'd best get a DNA done caus my girl does it. She has also laid
    8 infurtile eggs at a clutch so she is a girl.... not a breeder.
