Play time.

The three you can see clearly in front are Teddy, Shamrock & Tiny (how ironic)
Tiny is about the size of a cockatiel, the biggest English budgie we own. He sort of looks like a massive pineapple. He's a crested English, we just can't identify exactly what he is markings wise because he's so weird!

What the heck happened to his head?! My birds can fluff up to 3x their size but none of them can do that!! Tiny is one incredible (and ironic) bird!

Question: Is there a difference between crested, English and regular budgies from Australia? I'm new the bird business and am trying to get as much info as possible. :)

Crested is to do with the "fluffy" bit on their head.
English are bigger birds, Australian are just regular budgies & there's also Australian Bush budgies, they're tiny as! We have one, but they're so timid you have to be careful around them.
I want a Japanese helicopter budgie :(
Also, look up feather duster budgies, they're just plain...odd...

Holy cow! I thought budgies were just budgies! apparently I was wrong!

English budgies are bred for show competition. They are bigger, with fluffy heads, big beards and big dots.
Syyend's avatar
oh. I didn't know that people bred parakeets for show too!

Yes, there is show competition for all the parrots. I have won my share of trophies in local events over the years.
