Wonderful Karen. They are gorgeous. I have also just put my first lacewing hen and split lacewing cock together. Just a week ago and we have two eggs so far. :)

I will be watching this with interest Karen, as I love the Yellow Lacewing, I don’t have any at the moment, just two white ones & a couple of splits. I think the chances are pretty high that you will get mainly Yellow Lacewings; depending on what Recessives they both may carry.

 

I have put my Lacewings down in an attempt to get more & some splits, but no action as yet. Good luck.

I had resisted putting this pair together again. Last time I did they only successfully raised 1 chick who was . . . ahem, different. She lived roughly the same time as Angel and they were best friendswho grew up together and who were both different.

If I have the same result this time round then I know the cocks genes are flawed as I have bred from the hen before with perfect results.

 

Fingers crossed for good genes. :ausb:

“Different” in what way different Karen. He looks a nice bird, if you think he has a problem it might be worth mating him to another unrelated bird to get some splits & then mate one of these back to the Lacewing hen, that may get rid of the problem.

She was physically (dwarfish) & I think mentally challenged as well.

The problem is I don't know that there is a problem, it's just a feeling I got last pairing because the other chicks died & Angels Friend was challenged. We will find out over the next 5-6 weeks.

Probably your better pairing for lacewings would be to pair them to a normal green split for lacewing. Lacewing to lacewing is cause for smaller birds than their parents. Or so I have been told though our budgerigar club.

Please excuse my ignorance as I am only a beginner.

Are these 2 birds a different budgie breed? I have a yellow Lutino and he looks a lot bigger ( like the one on the left of your photo) than my other budgies.

They are beautiful looking birds.

Denise, these birds are lacewings not lutinos. They have the red eyes too like lutinos but they have cinnamon wing markings unlike a lutino :P

Sorry I have just re-read my post and I didn't explain it very well...oops

 

I meant that the one on the left's head is bigger/fluffier than the one on the right. They don't look the same birds, if that makes sense?

No worries denise :D the one on the left is the male and he is trying to impress the hen by poofing his head feathers upwards and forwards. Its a "look" that the boys get when they are trying to woo the hen :) also more obvious in show bred birds than pet types.

Well, for those of you who voted that I'd get Lacewings . . . You are Wrong, unfortunately!

Very interesting. I have heard two ideas on the lacewing. One it is a composite of the ino gene and the cinnamon gene, the other that it is a gene.

 

You hear from some breeders that the bird is split to lacewing. If this was the case lacewing to lacewing should give all lacewing. But yours is definately lutinos. - Interesting.

:) genetics percentages are not perfect. Paired Spangle to Spangle 13 chicks and only one Double Factor. Hardly 25%.
