Hey guys!
First of here are a pair of Englishes I am acquiring :D



The top one is a YF Spangle ****. I will have to ask the parentage of them, which is exciting as I have never had a bird with heritage that I know of :XD:
The hen is a Lacewing Spangle Hen.... The breeder said because of her colour (?) she cannot be showed but she has the conformation standard of a show bird.
So I was wondering what chicks they would produce?

Here is what she said in the email
The birds are a bit fluffed up due to the cold weather
> also. You may be able to see the spangle lacewing has cinnamon cheek
> patches as lacewings do, but there isnt a lot of lacewing markings on
> her wings because of the fact she is a spangle, which takes out a lot of
> wing markings. If you breed with her, you will get spangle birds and
> the cocks will be split lacewing, if they are normals, you will get
> lacewing cocks from breeding them with a normal hen, but if they are
> spangle, once again, they will give you birds with not much markings on
> their wings.
She gave me a choice of 4 cocks, YF Spangle, Grey Spangle or two albinos.
She did not know then that I was considering the Grey Spangle as an option. I just decided(After I googled them and :eek:) then almost that i would consider him. i am assuming he is the one in the cocks picture in the background.
As for Albino I don't think I want one. There eyes freak me out :XD:

Help please guys?

I'd take the YF2 sky blue behind the lacewing hen lol.

Hard to say what to pick without pics of each bird. I would probably avoid ino's and lacewings unless you want to breed more. How old is the YF spangle grey?

I am not sure but the female has just matured this season so she will be ready next season.
I wouldn't mind some lacewings but I would want the markings more pronounced

Sorry but i can only pick out of the 4..:eek:

Ok Guys i have more information!

I know i am getting my lacewing hen but I can now get 2 cocks. The other **** will be paired with my pet type, GF Cinnamon something green, Medusa.

I really want some more lacewings... Would it be possible to get any with the 3 cocks available or would they need to be split to lacewing?

I have no idea either, but Lacewing is one of my dream mutations..with noticable cinnamon markings though.

Congrats on whoever you choose!:D
