Mala mater!

I've found a Latin saying ""Nuntiam ex malo patre bonnis filites"
A bad father doesn't have good sons (Never good sons from a bad father)

I'm not sure the grammar is correct in this saying, as in old books, letters are difficult to see. "bonnis" and "filites" seems to have weird letters.

Could the first word be Numquam (Never) ? ex malo patre could mean "from a bad father" But I don't understand the rest (boni filii = "good sons" in classical Latin).
