Hi all,

When I was searching for a good female to my ino male, my eyes stopped on a rare budgie color:eek:

I have immeadiatly took him with me home, as he was the only one with this mutation

here are some pictures









I think he is a male, yet not sure is he a fallow or a lacewing?:budgie:

I would say that since it has a clear body, it's a Lacewing, but to be sure, someone more experienced will tell you.

Beautiful bird though! :) I can't believe I found a DEC at a store. The things they over look :rolleyes:

Thanks guys

we have 1 lacewing, and 2 saying fallow

I myself thinks he is a lacewing with strong colors, maybe he has a dark factor?

breeding him is the best option to confirm, what do you suggest to breed him with?

On my screen, he doesn't appear to have any coloring, other than his brown markings. Does he have color in person?
He has a grey color, which is a little bit strong towards the end of the body and the tail

I'm not an expert but I think Fallow. Lacewings cheek patches are suppose to be a light purple and his look light grey. Plus I can see some body color.

What an odd little fellow! I would breed him to see what his chicks looked like...just for confirmation. I also do not think he is a lacewing, though I am NOT an expert of fallows.

He is an opaline lacewing. You are very lucky to find one as well marked as this bird. Lacewings can have colour suffusion the same as many albinos do. He probably has a grey factor

If the cheek patches are pale violet it's a lacewing. If the body color is gradually diluted and is most visible on the rump it's a fallow. It looks more like a lacewing to me. Definitely interesting. Maybe it's even a grey factor too? :eek:
