I have two Lacewing hens. One has more of the Cinnamon markings on her wings, but is smaller in size and not as fluffy. The other has nice throat spots, nice feathering, but some lighter cinnamon wing feathers and even some white ones.
Both are adults. The smaller one is a proven breeder but I do not have her mate as he had already been sold.
Ideally, I'd like to use one hen to get a split son to pair to the other Lacewing hen.
I know with "rares" you should pair them to normals or birds of the same mutation, ideally with no splits. However, all of my males are not normal nor are they Lacewings.
My boys are:
Cinnamon Dom Pied
GF Cinnamon (non-opaline, non-pied)
GF Opaline SF Spangle
I would like to avoid the pied boy of course, as well as the Clearwing boy, to avoid splits as much as possible. I am not sure whether the SF Spangle would be a good pairing since Spangle is a dominant mutation and I can pick a son to keep who is not Spangle, or if I should pair her to the Cinnamon boy. Photos are below. Both boys are Goldenface Mauves so they appear more green.
So for those who have bred Lacewings successfully, which male would you pair to which female? Don't forget, the offspring of this pairing would be paired back to the other female.
I am not sure why the photo of the Spangle boy is sideways... Here is another photo of him.
