I am a bit confused about brown-wings. I read something about how they have darker markings than a cinnamon wing, is this true? I came across a picture on another forum and it looked too dark to be cinnamon, though that could be due to lighting.

I know a breeder of them and have seen them in the flash.

 

I do think they are a bit darker than cinnamon wings.

I came across a site that said they had dark eyes, instead of plum like a cinnamon.

No......not brown markings ...a lacewing has cinnamon markings....lighter .....and lacewings generally are all yellow or all white with pale brown or cinnamon markings

Brownwings have a grey-brown colour marking rather than brown. It is darker than a Cinnamon. They are born with RED eyes just like Inos but as they get older they do darken. They never develop a full iris ring but if you look you will see it is there just not white, more a brownish colour.

 

My signature has a picture of a one day old Brownwing. Note the RED eye.

 

Here are two other pics but they are not really big as these came from thumbnails of the orignal pics which have since been eaten by the cyber monster. :wub:

 

This is of the orignal bird I obtained. A Brownwing Grey.

This is a comparison picture so you can see the difference between the baby birds once they begin to feather up.

The one to the left is the Brownwing and the other is a Cinnamon.

Hope this helps you Ratzy. :rofl:

Gday RIP or anyone else that can help , i know your post was a few years ago, hopefully you can help. Im  in Sydney with the St George budgerigar society club, and as far as we are aware i am the only one with them over here or maybe anywhere but unfortunantely i am down to my last pair,, a visual grey hen that cant get to do anything and a split green cock Warren Wilson and i were speaking on the weekend and he said there was some in WA but is unaware of what happened to them. I also seen that you bred them.  Where are you located? Brings me to my point do you know who may have them or know the where abouts of some where i may be able to get in touch with them. I have a standard for them also. Thanks Craig 0410116181
