Default Lacewing?

I went to petco today just to look around and get some rope perches to attach to the outside of the cage to create a little birdy play gym. (For those of you who seen my last thread, Parents are okay with me keeping my cat outside of the room while I'm at work.)

Went to go look at the birds because I wanted to see all the babbies. I wasn't planning on buying any of them, I just wanted to look. That's when I seen this girl. She has me quite curious!

Taken with my moms phone:

(Giving me the stink eye)

It's a little hard to see but she has some very faint barring on her head and wings. It's most apparent on her head right above the eyes. Her main tail feather was also a very light tan color, but I couldn't tell if that was her actual color or if it was stained.

So is she a poorly marked lacewing? or is it possible that some albino's have super faint barring?

She seems to be at least 6-8 months old as she appears to have a clear cap and light iris rings.

I don't know the answer to your mutation questions, but she sure is beautiful! I'm sure an expert will come along who can help you out better!

Lacewings have red eyes. I see no red at all. I would guess DF spangle.

I can understand your curiosity! You can definitely see some faint barring there on her head

Some inos will have faint barring or markings show through where the pigment was not completely removed as you would expect. I have had a few of these myself and it was such a let down to learn that they were just poorly marked inos

On the other hand though, she could also be a lacewing that is also a pied fene or two which would explain why nearely all of her markings are pure white. A sf dominant pied and sf spangle for example would leave almost no markings on her at all.

Unfortunately in a case like hers there is no definite answer and breeding would be the only way to know for 100% sure. If you take into consideration the fact that she came from pecto though, the odds are very high that she is just a poorly marked ino rather than a lacewing

Really Rick? On my screen they look deep ruby red with a white iris

Reese, were they for sure red in person?

Ah! Thank you! That does make sense! I'm always super curious about mutations and genetics and Lacewing is one of my favorites so you could imagine my surprise to see some light barring on an Ino. Then again, as you said, she is from Petco.

Her eyes were definitely a plum colored red in person. Our phone cameras didn't really catch that very well. Sorry!
