Default What color/type is my baby? Gender?

Hello! I was wondering if any of you could already tell what color my cockatiel baby is, or possibly the gender from the parents!
First image is of the parents.
Baby also has white feathers on its wings, and speckled white on its tail.

Awww what a cute baby!! Do they only have the one baby? It looks quite bright and alert but it is quite badly plucked.

It looks like cinnamon whiteface, but it's so badly plucked that it's hard to be sure. It would be best to pull the chick and handfeed it.

I pulled it earlier today, but having some trouble getting it to accept formula. It is just the one baby. They only laid 3 eggs, one DIS early, the other 2 hatched but only the oldest survived, the younger died the first night. Disappointing!

I believe the father is the culprit for the plucking... he plucks the back and the crest of my female. He intends to be affectionate but he... isn't haha

Are there long term effects to the feathers now that he has been plucked?

There shouldn't be, he should feather up now and you won't know he was ever plucked. If a bird is plucked over a long period and follicle damage occurs then the feathers will not regrow, but that isn't the case here.

How old is the baby? If over 4 weeks it may be a bit of a struggle to feed it until weaning as they are much harder to feed at that age, if under 4 weeks it should accept feeding once it understands what you are doing.

He will beg but he will not bob his head. Afraid to asphyxiate
