Fallow? or Lacewing?
2 Attachment(s)
My husband and I went shopping, and I begged him NOT to let me come home with anything other than a clearwing blue hen. It's the ONLY bird i need for breeding.

Well, he can't say no to anything for me. lol

I found this beauty! So let the debate begin, lacewing or fallow?
These pics aren't the best, because it's night here, so the flash and living room light are not showing the red eyes properly.

I'll take more pics tomorrow in natural light.

If you're sure the eyes are red and there's no body color at all, I'd say fallow.

That's not a lacewing.

He/She is an odd duck.

This isn't the greatest picture, i'm having a hard time with my crappy camera. This shows his/her red eyes.

I do not see fallow or lacewing in these photos. She looks like a opaline cinnamon recessive pied to me :)

Many recessive pieds will have more plum eyes than pure black, especially in bright light or with a flash :)

I' m sorry to disappoint you :o Definitely a cute little girl!

If you look at this thread Allie posted a photo of her cinnamon recessive pied if you would like to compare and see what I mean about your little cutie :)
