Default How to get Lacewing chicks...?

Well, my Lacewing cock, Mist is finally old enough to breed. What mutations should I breed him to to get a few Lacewing chicks?

Then Hens I have are an albino, and a skyblue dominant pied opaline (the dom. pied is too you though). I wouldn't have any problems getting another budgie hen if I needed to however.

This is a picture of him. His cinnamon markings are really faint but they're there. You can see them if you enlarge the picture or you look closely enough. Or both ! (The red eyes don't show up in my pictures they never do. Not even on my albino...)







Sorry about the quality of this picture. It's the only picture I have that kind of shows his eyes are red.

Breed him to any hen and you will get lacewing hens and cocks that are split for lacewing. Best bet is to breed him to the albino so you get albino's and lacewings only.

Your hens will be lacewings, cocks will be albino's split to lacewing.

I would not let him breed with the albino! Red eye X red eye is not a good match, and the chicks will only have 75% eyesight. Also the feathers will be thinner, what makes them more vulnerable. It's not a healthy combination to breed with.

Ok, thanks a bunch also I have a question. If I bred him to an albino, I'd get lacewing hens and albino split lacewing cocks. What mutation would I have to breed the resulting cocks back to to get lacewings from them? Im guessing normal cinnamons? If so am I correct in assuming that the 3rd generation chicks would be both male and female lacewings?

Sorry if Im confusing. I'm trying to set up a line of lacewings

I wouldn't try to breed albino animals. Despite how pretty it looks, it is still a genetic defect, resulting in weakened immune systems and other deformities. It isn't common either; to get albino animals normally requires a certain amount of inbreeding. Your albino may well have come from parents who were related in some way. There's a chance something could go wrong with the young, even if it isn't visible from first glance, so you should really consider whether you want that genetic material being passed on.

My albino wasn't inbred in any way whatsoever. I bred her myself. Her father was a half english that I bought from a breeder and her mother was a petstore bird. I even bought them in different cities Besides, I've been breeding her in the past. She's had several completely healthy clutches with my light green opaline clearflight (masking dom. pied) that I've paired her up with several times already.

Anyway, if you had read my other posts, I was also thinking about just breeding him to a normal cinnamon to get the chicks. I really don't want to pair him with my albino anyway. She's already bonded and she's getting too old to breed anyway. I also don't want her breeding anymore because she was in an accident that broke her beak which is now deformed.
