Changing colors after 2 years

My normal 2 yr old male gray cockatiel now has white feathers all over his body. He almost looks spotted. The white feathers grew in a pale yellow, then changed to white all around his head, back and under belly. None of my other older cockatiels have ever done this.
He is very healthy and loving. I know he is not sick at all. I just have never seen a normal gray cockatiel suddenly develop white feathers and now he looks spotted. He's very distinctive looking now. Thanks for your help. I was thinking that maybe this is part of the molting process. I have only owned Cockatiels for three years, but have older rescued birds.
