It depends where you are. As Tracie said....I won't repeat it but I have something to add.

There are 2 types of white cockatiel with red eyes. Albino & Lutino.

Albino's are extremely rare & fetch a high price. The problem is most markets for tiels sell lutino's to unsuspecting buyers as Albino's. They are impossible to identify as an Albino. So my suggestion is if this bird is being sold at a very high price & as an Albino walk away, it's not likely to be one. Check out the pricing in your area & it'll give you an idea of what price this one should be. If it's too high go somewhere else.

How much a bird is worth
by: Tracie

It depends on the market in your area. It depends if the bird has been checked by an avian vet and has a certificate of good health. It depends on how old the bird is too.

The best way to answer this question is to check with other breeders in your area and DO make sure the bird is disease free and healthy before bringing it home.

Just in case, make sure you know how to care for this bird if you have not owned birds before. Cockatiels should eat 80% high quality pellets and only 20% healthy treats and that includes seed. If the bird is on an all seed diet, then read the Switching Birds To Pellets article to convert the bird to a healthy diet.
