2 of the 3 albinos/lacewings have faint throat spots. looks a bit cinnamon. the photos don't really show it because the sun was too bright. mum might mask cinnamon? she has some faint markings too and has a blue sheen.

yes i understand this and if they boy turn out anygood they still could fit ino you plan

however i do know this was a kind of test run so yeah /lacewing albinos can bite your butt latter in your stud so may be best to cull out

great for pet breeding though you may want one for that

as for mum she is nothing spec you are right but foster mums are always handy when you have show stock think about that shes a great little mum

sorry for the late reply.

i had a look at all of my birds on the weekend and i made a list which ones to keep etc. as i don't want to end up with too many birds.

the albino mum is on my keeping list now...she is such a good mum...so she will be a great foster mum when i start my show type breeding in august/september....got my club rings last week...very exciting!

might not breed pet types in future so some of my flock will go. thinking of keeping 25ish budgies and start from there...most of them show type....some pet type for fostering.

 

oh - and it's so funny: sherbert the lacewing is so confident now. he is back in the aviary and is flirting with all the girls now, especially the young albino hen i got from you and her mum. he must like albinos.
