I think this is simlar to breeding (sort of )

phoenix and kestrel are quite big birds (bigger than the others)
they are not englush budgies but do you think they could be cross english budgie.
they were both from breeders (they have a ring from the Welsh Budgie Society)
do you think coming from a breeder just makes then bigger.

are budgies small if they have been bred by people who dont know the requirements of chicks? (budgies you find in pet shops)

or is it just because they are half english budgie??

Exhibition, or show budgies bred here in England, are larger than the 'pet' type variety. So I imagine (though I'm no expert ) that breeding the two would have an impact in size.

Larger sized budgies can be bred anywhere not just in England. It is just a matter of always selecting the biggest birds to breed from. Many breeders in England who breed exhibition type budgies have been selecting their largest birds for many generations. Breeding a small budgie to a bigger one will usually produce some big ones, some small ones and some medium sized ones

It is possible that the breeder you got your birds from did in fact cross breed. Nothing to worry about though.

I didn't know people crossed the two! Maybe I would like a cross between English and pet type. The English budgies are kind of silly looking, with their poofy heads and grumpy looking expression! Pet types appeal to me more. ^_^

Interesting thread! I've always had English big boys but never really considered they were large until I first got the internet and did some research. It would appear that UK birds, in my experience, are always on the big side. It wasn't til I saw some American/Canadian/Australian birds that I realised the ones I've had all my life were not the norm! I've never laid eyes on a 'pet shop' sized budgie ha ha.

I'm currently looking for a buddy for my Pedro and went to a different breeder this time to see what he had. Amazing but all his budgies were blue and huge! I've been looking for a green/lemon mix so I will have to wait and see what his pairs produce. Will keep you informed!
