Default Its my turn for a "what type" question...

I've always called Wren a lutino, but not really sure.

He's got the red eyes, with a bright iris ring (this has me confused, do ino's have iris rings? my Albino doesnt???)

not really clear, but you can see better red in this one (baby pic from quarantine)



He's all yellow, but has a slight marking on the wing (lacewing???) with whitish flights (clear flight?)


you can see the light markings on this pic (camera doesnt always catch them)


You all know I can get some mutations, but when its a mix, i get all screwed up!

I am 100% guessing here.... YF2 Opaline Albino Double Factor Pied.

Or maybe...

YF2 Opaline Albino Clearflight Pied.

Or maybe...

YF2 Opaline Albino

Or maybe...

Clearflight Lutino

Or maybe....

I have no idea.

Ino's DO have Iris rings.

I'm taking a guess here and going to say Lacewing.

LACEWING.The Redeyed Lacewing, a bird that has cinnamon-brown markings on head, neck, mantle and wings,and a clear body colour which can be either yellow or white.Well defined cinnamon coloured spots are also present,the feet and legs are pink and the cocks cere will be flesh coloured similar to the Inos.


Looking over at my Lutino, she has no marking at all except for her silver/white cheek patches. She does however have the clear flight feathers too.

Thank you! now do all ino's have rings, do they vary in intensity? As my albino hen, you cant see a ring.

One of my lutinos has very light markings but I'm sure that it is just a lutino. It is possible that your bird is a poorly marked lacewing

Lutinos can mask a lot of other mutations so it could be that one is faintly showing through

Inos do have an iris ring so if your albino has no iris ring the albino mutation is probably masking recessive pied.

Flight feathers on a lutino are always lighter. A clearflight pied in the green series would have yellow flights

Have you bred from him? Breeding results are the most accurate way of checking mutations

Ahhh... so would she be called "spit to recessive" since she had no rings?

I havent bred from him... since i've lost a handful of birds this last year, I might breed some bugies this spring, i'll give him a shot. What type should i breed him with that the mom wouldn't affect the outcome?
