I think they are fallows (assuming they have red eyes). Lacewings usually have less colour than these birds

Pity you couldn't breed them with a red stain on their heads

these are fallows :)

lacewings are albino or lutino with cinnamon factor
so there is none or hardly any other color in the body..

these have obvious colors.. :)
stains are there for marking?
never seen that before :)

It is a shame we dont breed red or 'peach faced' budgies. The colour staining on those budgies from a mineral block (or whatever stained the feathers) actually looks quite nice...

Thanks all for the reply.

I am thinking of starting to breed some fallows once they all molt and settle in, any suggestions on pairing is welcome.

thanks.

Just bear in mind that fallow is a recessive gene so it will need to come from both parents to get visual fallows

a friend of mine is breeding fallows..
he always makes couples :
fallow x split fallow.

since red eye X red eye is known for not being a good combination.

there should be no problem breeding red eye with red eye.... i think the fallow x split fallow is because there is thought that two fallows bred together may produce smaller birds...
