Description: The Cinnamon Cockatiel, also known as the Isabelle Cockatiel or the Cinnamon Tiel, is a a sex-linked recessive mutation. The gene that effects the melanin pigment actually stops the brown pigment from changing to grey or black. It doesn’t change the amount of pigment, just the color of it. The brown pigment that remains then extends to the eyes, beak, feet and legs, and the feathers. There is more yellow in the feathers of the chest on both the male and female, than on a common grey cockatiel, and more yellow on the face of the female. The warmth of the cinnamon coloring is enhanced even more with the yellows in the head and tail. The color of a Cinnamon’s plumage can range from a warm tannish-gray to a chocolate brown. There are some other pretty variations of the Cinnamon that include the Cinnamon Pearl Cockatiel and Cinnamon Pied Cockatiel.
Geography: The Cinnamon Cockatiel is a strain developed by breeders and is not seen in the wild.
