Psittacula k. manillensis (Bechstein 1800)

Indian Ring-necked Parakeet

Pallid

Inheritance: Sex-linked recessive.

Yellow or White, brighter around the beak; neck ring grey with rose or white in cocks.
Beak/Feet:

Note: "Lacewing" is the outdated erroneous name for this mutation. A remarkable essentiality is, that Pallid behaves co-dominant towards Ino. In the past Pallids were mated to Lutinos to breed "Pallids". These "Pallids" are actually Pallid-inos formerly known as "Yellowheaded Cinnamons". These birds are much duller and lighter in appearance than the genuine Pallids and they lack the wing markings.
