What To Pair With?

Recommended Posts

I have one Red eye Lacewing male[white series like dad] ,the dad was red eye lacewing, white series and mom yellow series. I would like to get more yellow ones like mom. Any suggestions as what type/color hen I should pair him with? He is just about a year old now and I would like to get him ready for breeing. I have added a picture of the parent birds

You will need either another yellow lacewing hen or a green normal hen split for lacewing.

Can a green normal hen be split for lacewing given it's a combo of two sex linked mutations??

Feel free to send him over I'll make sure I quarantine and all that... I'll send you the Yellow babies back and I'll keep the white ones. Sound Good??

Lacewing is sex linked so a hen cannot be split for lacewing.

JB can we see that hen of yours one more time I don't think i got a good look at her the last 2 times :rofl: ...

 

Quickest way would be to buy either a lutino Hen or Green series Lace wing Hen ...

you couldn't pair him back to mom, the closest people line breed is Grandparent to grandschild or Half sister to half brother...but once you start doing that it gets VERY complicated. Do a search for Line Breeding. I wouldn't recomend it as one of your first attempts at breeding. Could you look around for a Lutino Hen (All yellow with red eyes)? that should help you get some of the outcomes you want I think... It wouldn't be as high percentage as white lacewing to yellow lacewing...

I am resizing the picture, because upon so many looks at your bird JB, lol, Mom to my boy is Lutino. She has the white cheek spots and no markings on wings or head. Any new suggestions now. I know the REL male 1year old I have, the dad red eye lacewing was masking grey, mom was lutino. I know dad was masking grey as when I paired him to a normal violet hen I got 2 grey males and 2 red eye lacewing hens and one light violet. Wow hope I haven't confused any of you.... here is a resized picture of the red eye lacewing boys parents, the red eye lacewing dad masking grey, and lutino mom 000_0018.jpg

Genetics really isn't my thing but I know to make sure you get lacewings you should pair with another lacewing... Its a sex linked gene... if you want split lacewing cocks and lacewing hens pair with others.... I am sure if you search through the forum there would be a lacewing breeding chart giving you the expected outcomes with pairings... might be worth a look... Do you wana see what I think you should pair him too??? :ph34r: look bellow at my signature on the left hand side... or to the left on my avatar (the bird in front.)
