Pastel Silver / Recessive Silver / Ashen Fallow / Pale Fallow / East Coast Silver Cockatiel

A recessive fallow mutation that first appeared in New Zealand (1950s) and then in Europe (1960s), where it finally was able to be developed. They are known to have a more steel-y color, though the first individual pictured has slightly more yellow coloration than normal. The second individual pictured is mixed with whiteface. While this is the typical color for pastel silver cockatiels, they can sometimes be far closer to normal coloration (pictured third). In cases like these, red eyes will be the best indicator.
