Lutino Lacewing With Green Tail

Recommended Posts

My only pair of budgies (normal green cock, lutino lacewing hen) recently hatched five chicks which are now fully fledged. Among them are two white albino, one normal green, a lutino and a lutino lacewing with a bright green/grey tail. I was surprised I even got any albinos and excited to get a lacewing, especially with the green tail. I have two questions. The first is that I would like to know what the genetic makeup of the parents might be in order to achieve these offspring. And secondly, is the green tail common in lacewings? Will it just moult out eventually? I have included some pictures of the parents and babies to show you :)

 

Thanks,

Joachim.

Are you confused ?

 

A lacewing is one thing a lutino is another.

 

Lacewings have red eyes, yellow or white feathers and cinnamon markings.

 

and the first three babies are NOT lacewings

 

 

This one SAM_0618.jpg

 

what is the actual colour of the tail ? If its a lacewing the tail will be cinnamon brown. The tail doesnt appear to be......unless the photo is bad ?

I must be really confused then :P The bird in the last photo is the same bird as in the first three photos and is the bird on the left in the fourth. It's tail is a greeny blue, like the tail of a normal green budgie. What mutation is it?

Well it isnt a lacewing thats for sure :D

 

its entirely possible if the eyes are red that you may have some fallow in the mix.

I once had a red eyed chick who turned out to have fallow and recessive pieds mixing up the gene pool and the results were very confusing :)

 

See what some others have to say :)

I am with Squeak on this one, opaline fallow. Fallows have the red eyes so that might solve the confusion. It is a green based fallow, so that explains why the young are yellow. She must be split blue to also get the Albino. That is some genetic cocktail you have mixed up here.
