Hi,

I have a dark green **** split for lutino and cinammon.

His mate is a dominant pied olive.

Will they produce lacewings if so what are the chances in percentage.

They have produced lutino , albinos, dominant pieds and cinammons in the past

thanks.:budgie:

If they have produced lutino's and albino's then we can assume both birds are split for blue. Also, all albinos and lutinos produced would have been girls.

If the **** bird is split albino and cinnamon, then only females will be visual albinos, cinnamons or lacewings. Without getting into the genetics or maths in a long way, i'll just say for every baby this pair produces, there is a 12.5% chance you will get a lacewing female. That being said, for every 10 babies produced by this pair, one chick has a good chance of being lacewing.

Thats 50% female x 50% albino x 50% cinnamon (or 0.5x0.5x0.5x100) = 12.5%.

Thanks for the information Guthwulf,

If i want to increase the percent of lacewing to which type of female should i mate the **** to.

Mating your **** bird to a cinnamon or an ino hen should increase the percentage of lacewings
