This is dad- a normal cobalt, split to ino and opaline. This is mum - yellow faced dominant pied. These two have produced albinos and creminos. The next three pictures are some of their offspring - all with red/ruby eyes. The first I initially thought was a female lacewing which I now believe to be a male fallow. I don't know much about fallows but because the long tail feather is a dark blue and it is male, I believe it cannot be a lacewing. Can anyone offer any help regarding type of fallow and what this means re the parents genetics? The next one, I believe is a is a white-faced female lacewing. Again can anyone offer any explanation re genetics? e.g. mum or dad carries cinnamon gene??? The last offspring is a yellow faced male lacewing. This I don't understand because I thought lacewing was a sex-linked mutation suggesting that the baby would need to be female. So how can this be? Can anyone offer an explanation of how the mum and dad were able to produce these offspring? What should it tell me about the genetics of the mum and dad and the offspring? Do I have the mutations of the babies correct or am I wrong? Please help because I am intrigued.
Hey guys, If you've seen my previous post, i made a new pairing in my breeding cage about a week ago.. The male was previously paired to another female but i split him up to go with a new female. However the breeding cage is in the aviary where his old mate was and I have seen them regurgitating food to eachother through the breeding cage wire front. He doesnt really show any signs of affection towards the female in the breeding cage but they still seem to both go in the breeding box for short periods (couple of minutes) during the day. I know i should probably just be patient but i feel that I wont get any positive results if he is still 'interacting' with his previous mate. Should i take the breeding cage out of the aviary so he can breed with the female or will they get over it and settle down in the next couple of weeks? The pair that I am trying to breed are both over a year old. There is another male in the aviary with the female and he trys to peck her away when she's near the male in the breeding cage but is unsuccessful. Some answers would be very helpful.
