If you could tell us which birds you plan to pair together we could tell you what to expect. Or do you plan to colony breed?

Has the yellow hen got red eyes?

May I ask you how old these pictures are? :)
Some of the birds don't look old enough to be considered for breeding.

blues, greens, opalines, maybe greywings...

potentially inos, and cinnamons...

it all depends on which you pair up, can't be more accurate without knowing that. also it depends on what genes they are split for so sometimes you get nice surprises that you couldn't have guessed.

these are my thoughts...

pairing of budgie 2 = olive opaline/blue and budgie 6 = skyblue cinnamon opaline;

- they will have all opaline chicks, some dark green and some cobalt. some of the males will be split for cinnamon too.
the adult male may be split for ino, so you may get albino or lutino hens too.

pairing of budgie 3 light green greywing= and budgie 9 =skyblue (or cobalt) opaline/greywing;

- if they are not split for anything else they will have light green or dark green normals and greywings, with the males split for opaline. If the **** is split for blue you will get blues also. if he is split for opaline you will get some opalines.

pair of budgie 4 = dark green opaline greywing/blue and budgie 7 = violet recessive pied cinnamon hen.

- various shades of blue and green/blue, normal/cinnamon-recessive pied cocks and opaline/recessive pied hens.

breeding lacewings can be done but you need specific birds and it takes a lot of breeding, search for lacewings on the forum and you will find a thread about it.

oops, i was just going on what i could see from the photos, maybe i should have checked on the previous threads too.... will look again.

i imagine you would get more people with replies if you did smaller threads. maybe a thread for each pair? it is a bit overwhelming to be asked to do multiple pairs at a time...

ok, so if b2 is dark green then it just means you could get more shades of green or blue - light green and dark green, skyblue and cobalt.

so all the chicks will be opaline, if the male is split for greywing you may get some opaline greywings too.

the hen looked like she had brown markings so that is why i guessed cinnamon, but it is probably just the photo.

hope that helps.

Sorry I haven't had time to answer your thread. Toni has given you some excellent advice.

Breeding lacewings from cinnamons & inos requires a good knowledge of genetics and several generations to produce a very small number of lacewings. You would be better to try and find some foundation lacewing birds to breed from
