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 parakeet is nesting. I removed the male parakeet. Will she be fine between nesting, feeding budgies and feeding herself

This is not true! I read this and was so happy, I waited for my baby to be 16 days and gently handled it. I came home from work and mama found that mama had killed him. I’m so sad!

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.
