you maybe lucky enough to get lacewings.

the male will pass on either ino or cinnamon to most of his chicks, the hen will pass on both cinnamon and ino. that will give you inos or cinnamons.

if the male passes on a sperm that has had the ino and cinnamon recombined onto the same chromosome then you will get a lacewing. the chance of this particular recombination is about 3% i read.... but i think nev has had much higher rates so fingers crossed.

the male chicks will be split for lacewing though so if you do not get any this year you will next.
