So far I've used clearwings and my best normals. I purchased 3x dilutes this year to put into them - 2x dom pied opaline dilutes (1 cock and one hen) and 1x normal dilute (cock most likely split cinnamon and opaline).

 

Unfortunately it's hellishly hard to find good dilutes over here and all of a sudden everyone seems to want them (greywing and clearwing breeders coming out of the woodwork). I'm really hesitant to use the dilute cocks as I bet they will be split for cinnamon and I was very wary of putting opaline into the line too as currently my clearwings are just that and don't have anything else much creeping around in the lines as well as the whole opaline AOSV thing too - I was warned not to let opaline get into them either actually (or maybe I'm getting that confused with the BES's?!.

 

I will give the dilute opaline dom pied hen a go next season and just keep the hen chicks (dom pied or not) and use them. I was going to use her this season but she is so nice that I popped her into my normal line first. Maybe down the track I'll have some useful dilutes drop out and she has bred some really nice babies.

 

I'm also trying to keep a family just for the wing clarity. I have been very lucky to purchase a family of birds with exception variety charateristics and will try and run a line of them alongside my other "tinkerings".

 

I've only just started on this project - this is the 3rd season I've had them and the first time I've gone majorly outside the original family that I purchased in. To be honest I don't mind if I stay with tiny little clearwings with great wing clarity as they are just sooooo nice to have flying around the aviary. But I do aspire to having some clearwings as nice as yours, clearwing, one day - maybe, hopefully!

Hey, thanks for the compliment, but I don't know if its deserved. I don't keep many clearwings, I used to years ago but now I cull heavily on all my stock. I breed about 100 birds a year but only fly a total of about 50 Off season. That includes Normals, Cinnamons, Opalines, Dom Pieds, Spangles and Clearwings. I guess what I'm trying to do is just keep and breed with the best. Cheer Clearwing.

Notice the feather length hanging off the body, so he will be wonderful for my hen.

I will do a breeding journel on the pair once they start :)
