Thank you so much guys! As for the eyes - I turned on my table lamp for the photo and put the bird right near it. I wanted to catch at least a trace of red color that lutinos have - but I couldn't. So she doesn't have it at all.
So why can't she be a clear pied?
It's just very important - I'm looking up for a male for this lady and don't know what bird to look for((
Should I do what's called a test breeding?

Excuse me for my english - it's not my mother tongue.
As for the health - I own this bird only a couple of weeks. I will show her to the vet soon, but now she eats well and flies happily around the room since the 1st day here, but I might not notice any symptoms. Let's see what the doctor will say.
The thing that worries me she doesn't communicate with other birds. As well as with us(( but she's very tame.

Her eyes are blue....this is an indicator of a lutino split to pied or whiteface. See this: http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=28818 You could definitely try test breeding her, I'd try a pied split lutino male and see what pops up in the nest.

Thank you so much! Can I try it with a white face male, to keep this cheeks?
WF ino split to pied or WF pied split ino - is it ok? Or it's better with a non-wf bird?

If she's a pastelface, you'll get more pastelface by breeding her to a wf. If she's a yellowcheek, whiteface is a huge no no. Also, I'd go with the pied split ino. Breeding lutino to lutino can create smaller, weaker babies in the nest which is not what you want.

Default yellow bird w/ tangerine cheeks

I know very little about mutations, but I want to agree that she is beautiful! I like her "whiskers", too! Those long cheek feathers do look very different, but they are attractive!

Wow she is pretty I wonder if she would pass on the long cheek feathers? You could be the start for a moustached cockatiel breeder! Lol
