I'm not certain... but, I think lacewing is in albinos and lutinos only.

When breeding those two what are the chances of getting a lacewing? Just curious.

im not sure teasha but nev breeds lacewings, he'd be able to tell you
even with the right pairing, not every chick will be a lacewing they are quite rare, especially if they are to have excellent markings

on reflection, the grey could be split for ino and cinnamon, but grey is dominant and a colour adding mutation, so i dont think breeding him even with the right partner would produce lacewings. but i dont really know. i have gotten myself all confused haha.

hi there,

yes a grey can be split for lacewing, it simply menas it is carrying both ino and cinnamon. a lacewing is an ino (albino or lutino) cinnamon bird.

a grey lacewing is white with the pale cinnamon markings.

A male budgie of any mutation can be split for lacewing. A lacewing is created by the ino & the cinnamon mutations combining on the same gene. If a bird is split for both mutations the crossover rate is very low and you'll get cinnamon & ino chicks with only very few lacewings. Once you have a lacewing or a split lacewing they will generally breed true when paired to other mutations
