Parakeet Chicks

Parakeets that have been bred for shows and exhibitions are often referred to as English Budgies or English Parakeets (see Parakeet Varieties, above). In general, these birds are on the large end of the parakeet size scale, often having emphasis on feather features such as crests or tufts. As with any animal show, judges will be looking for the most perfect versions of the various types of parakeets.

Exhibition Parakeets

Successful show birds are placid and will be used to noise, travel and all the activities that come with the show life. Any excitable, nervous or noisy bird will not thrive in the show environment and certainly won’t be scooping up and prizes.

If you want to exhibit parakeets, speak to an experienced breeder who can ensure you buy a suitable bird.

My young budgie has laid eggs but is not sitting on them. I have moved them to a diy incubator. How often do we have to move the eggs.

Hello, Our budgie laid 9 eggs. Both mom and dad were laying on the eggs until last week. Why did they stop? How do i know if the eggs are going to hatch? Linda

The blue baby budgie in the picture looks just like my oldest baby! It is around 3 weeks old and is constantly sitting in the doorway of the nest with its head poking out, it is so cute. I wonder if it wants to leave the nest soon...

I have had my Male Parakeet and Female for 2 years. She recently hatched a chick. Everything has been going well for the past 3 weeks until yesterday. I noticed that my Female Parakeet was being very mean and aggressive toward my Male Parakeet. This morning when I uncovered them they were fine and getting along. When I got home from work, my Male Parakeet was Lying at the bottom of their cage dead. I’m still in shock as I never saw this coming! I’m heartbroken that she killed him. There is blood all over her feathers on her face. Does anyone know why this would have happened? I’m devastated! Now I’m afraid she might try nd him her baby. Please help
