One of my babies from Spade(a grey df violet, split ino and cinnamon) and Bianca (a albino masking cinnamon, and possibly spangle and opaline) has me guessing. I thought she was just albino when she was born, but now that her feathers are starting to come out a little I am wondering, as her 2 main tail feathers are light brown, and it looks like she might have the same coloring coming through on her shoulders and wings too. She also has a bit of color in her cheek patches it looks like.

I cant find any pictures of any baby lacewings to compare, and after trying to breed a lacewing for over 4 years I am a little anxious to know what this little girl is :D

If you dont think lacewing, what do you think could be causing it? I know she is still young so if it is still too early to tell I understand and will post more as she feathers out :)

Here are some pics. One of her, and one of her(baby 2) and her albino sister(baby 4) for comparison. Her tail quills are not light pink like a normal albino, but dark browinish in color.

If anyone can give me some advice on what they think I would really appreciate it :)

And if you have any pics of baby lacewings around this age, or young I would absolutly love to see them!

Thanks everyone! :D

I bet it is! I mean I don't know for sure but I have all my fingers crossed! *gets cage and jumps in a car full of gas*
I hope so! I keep going to the bird room and looking at her hoping more feathers have come out :rolleyes:

They seem to grow so fast except when you want then too! :D

I don't blame you, I would be too, keep us posted. It would belovely for you to have a lacewing.

Keep an eye out for Teasha though. She is blonde and can be easily spotted ducking in and out of the shrubbery trying to budgienap ;)

From your description she sounds like a lacewing. Fingers crossed. Good luck!

I study my chicks at this age too to try to decide if they are lacewing or not. The lacewings that are quite pale can be very hard to pick for a start. Usually you can see a tinge of cinnamon.

Thank you Nev! That is all I can see is a little bit of cinnamon on the tail feathers for sure so far.

She could be an opaline and even spangle so this could make her markings even harder to see unfortunatly depending on what Bianca is masking. I absolutly for sure see color in the tail though... we'll see and I am keeping my fingers crossed! :D

Yes I have been pairing for 4 years trying to get my cinnamon and ino genes on the same birds for this... I just hope the two have FINALLY fused since the odds of it are against me, and she is actually a lacewing :D time will tell! I can't find one within 10 states of me to save my life!
