Breeding a new line of lacewings has been one of my goals for four years now. I have finally reached my goal of producing a lacewing female. She is a 50% American 50% English budgie. The quills of her tail are still bright white but she has light brown cheek patches and bars on her shoulders. Here are a couple photos of her.

I know how long you've been wanting this and how much thought you've put into it. Congratulations! Perhaps it's just the photos, but I can't see we markings. Guess that just means you'll have to provide us with more photos of this little beauty!

The male is an American normal, green split for ino, cinnamon and blue and female is an English cinnamon, grey. Her markings are very light but they are there. I took most of the photos without the flash but then you can't really see her markings. I'm hoping they will get more intense as she ages. She has three siblings, two cinnamon greys and one cinnamon grey green. I'll be posting more photos soon.

What a beauty! Do you have a name for her? If not I would consider Belle, which means beauty (though you probably know that from experience or something :eek: :p)

Anyway, she is SO pretty :loveeyes:

:love: She is simply beautiful! She reminds me of my li'l white lady when she was younger - who is just plain white though, no markings at all.

Hello Bridget........ normal, green split for ino, cinnamon and blue and female is an English cinnamon, grey..I don't see how you got a lacewing.I believe it is more likely a albino showing the shadowing from the cinnamon on both sides of the parents.The marking will likely fade out more after a molt if this is the case.Lacewing should be very definite markings almost a coffee colour.If it were a male you could proof breed it in the first round but this would be a hen.

Jerry the combination of cinnamon and ino that the male is split for can and will cross. Thats how you can make a new lacewing line. I'm hoping her marking show up more when she ages. You can see she has two light brown spots on her cheeks. She is showing baring around her shoulders and her tail is a slightly darker color than her body. We will see.

Oh I agree.It's just that I have bred lacewings and they have been generally dark after 6 weeks especially when out of greys and this is why I said albino showing the shadowing...but yes it could darken ..time will tell... good luck with a new line.
