Hello Punkin~
I hope you are enjoying the day! It's still sunny and warm here! I'm not use to having so many day without rain!hahahahaha

Here is today's parakeet blog! Hope you enjoy it!

Today I am talking about what most people think of as a parakeet! Budgies!

Budgies are parakeets but not all parakeets are Budgies.
A true Budgie is from central and southern Australia and they are all green and yellow like me! They live in the grasslands and forest there.

The Budgie was brought to Europe in 1838 by an ornithologist named John Gould. They became very popular pets and in 1894 Australia banned the export of them. That ban is still in effect today.

English Budgies are much bigger than Australian or American Budgies as you can see by the pictures in my gallery, they come is many different colors now. That happened because someone figured out recessive and dominate genes and how to manipulate them to get colors other than green and yellow.

You can tell if a Budgie is a boy or a girl by the color of their ceres (the top part of the beak). Boys have bluish-purple ceres and girls have tan to pinkish-brown.

It is estimated that 8 million Budgies live in the United State! That's a lot!! They use to be considered the smallest parrot but the parrotlet is actually just a bit smaller!

Thank you for you attention and don't forget to give Muffin a vote today! Page number 203943!
