I bought this girl, with three others at our recent bird fair. (I imagine she is a girl, though I'd love to be confirmed or not) Anyway, I went with the intentions of finding an albino, lacewing, cinnamon, lutino, etc. I found a cinnamon, a yellowface, a beautiful cobalt, and then there was this one. It's name is Butters (though once confirmed as a girl, she'll be Buttercup). I was wondering if she was a lacewing...or not. She has dark eyes, but no coloring on her body except for some markings on her wings. Her body is varying shades of yellow.

I believe lacewings have red eyes. It's hard for me to tell from your pics, but is her belly blue?

That is what I wondered. As I mentioned, if she isn't a lacewing, what is she?

Disclaimer: I am no expert. In the first pic, her belly looks blue-ish. If it is, she'd be a YF2. And going on with the assumption that her belly is blue, I'd say yf2 recessive pied. I have one who is also greywing and he has very little markings on his wings at all. But, like I said, I'm no expert and the pics are a tad dark.

The flash in the first picture makes her pale belly look blue :D And I do apologize for the dark pictures, I was taking them early this morning.

Hmmmm....I have no idea. The best I can do is not a lacewing since her eyes are dark. :D Good luck. I'm certain that someone will come along who knows more.

Lace wings have thin cinnamone markings. They come in white or yellow. They have red eyes.

The lighting is very poor on these photos. It looks to be a cream faced, white (aka dilute) but as I said the lighting and focus is poor enough that I can not tell much else.

looks like a recessive pied of some sort to me. does it have an iris ring?

if the belly has blueish down low then it is a yf blue rec pied with something diluting the markings (greywing or dilute maybe).

Okay we will need a closer picture - no flash - natural lighting of the front and back.
Right now the pictures are un clear :)
