I'd guess that they are solid, show-type budgies, not the slim, little pet-shop type of budgie :) Just a guess though!!

Budgies are ofcourse, australian natives. Much of the work in breeding and selecting for colours has been done overseas, especially in england and europe. I believe much of the work with rosellas is being done overseas too. It's a shame really, that we can't claim the glory here in Aus.

I much prefer the original, wild-type, small budgerigars... the ones with the original wild colouring. Even budgies sold as pets are usually considerably larger than the wild ones.

I can see though, why people breed for different colours, size & feathering... just as they do in pigeons, doves, waterfowl, poultry... and many other creatures.

Having Googled after posting my earlier query, I see that "English" budgies are, as bwds alluded, essentially those bred for show (not the exact definition, but for practical purposes close enough).

I hope you find someone interested in them, kiran619.
