I've become interested in this mutation recently. If you have photos, can you please post them here. Also, any other info you have about creating/breeding clearwings would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hopefully you get some good in depth answers :D because I need some clear wings and I don't think I'm ever going to find any around me

The only thing I know about clearwing is that it looks very similar to a greywing but has a very bright body color compared to greywing. xD

Yep (except for FBC greywing, which has undiluted body color). And here's the source for that info: http://www.***************/colorsguide.html#dilution. Genetics info: http://www.***************/gen_dilution.html.

The only other thing I know about clearwing is a heavily marked clearwing can be hard to distinguish from a FBC (full body color) greywing. See Nev's and JacoRBow's responses to my thread http://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=77657 as well as pictures of my hen whose mutation is questionable (either opaline FBC greywing green or opaline heavily marked clearwing green).

Don'cha just hate it when someone responds to your post with "I can't help [much]"? :p

A lot of us probably already have Clearwings and just don't know it because from my reading - They do not match the "Standards" very well any more and its hard to tell when one is a clear wing because they don't look the way they are supposed to, or how they looked back when they 1st started appearing

Hi

Check The BAA website and contact Rick Spier. He and Cheryl Capi are known nationwide for their winning clearwings. Rick is very helpful. There are several Breeders in Florida. David Eberst in Archer Florida, near Gainsville, Henry Thimmes in South Florida as well as Capi/Spier and more. there are ways to clear up the wings. Ask Rick for suggestions.

Blessings,

You are most welcome. Many of my birds have come from Henry Thimmes. Julie also gets birds from Henry. He is a long time breeder and currently one of the top 3 breeders in point standings for 2011 in BAA. He is also a BAA Judge.

Blessings,
