Saw two of them!

Are these pretty rare? I've never seen one before.

The markings are a little darker than in this photo. My phone tends to overexpose, I'm afraid.

Are her eyes red? If so, then I guess you are right and she is a lacewing.
And yes, they are rare. I also have never seen one for real, only in pictures.

Honestly, I didn't notice the eyes. I asked a store employee to move this one from the flock of about 10 - 12 English budgies so I could see him better, but I have horrible eyesight so I never got a good look at the eyes!

Anyone in the Houston area want to grab one of this, PM me and I'll tell you where I saw them. I want one so badly, but I have the parrotlet, and will have a flock of budgies. I would have to house an English budgie in another cage, and I'm not ready for that.

I know I'll be sorry I didn't grab one of these later.

Its really hard to tell since the markings are so light, and we can not see the eye or tail color very well. It looks more like a grey dilute than a lacewing if I had to guess from these photos

Well, the markings were definitely brownish/tan and not grey at all, but I'm a total newbie when it comes to budgies!

I'm no experience in mutations whatsoever, but whatever she is, she is gorgeous! If only I could buy her... Man, I'm starting to feel like a hoarder lol. I can't get enough birds!
