Hello Charlie Keet~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom goes back to work tonight so she had to go to the market early. She still has to go to the library because I'm out of books to read! I have to have my storytime everyday or I'm just not a happy zon!
I hope you enjoy the day! I'm watching the gardeners and later I'll help mom get something cooked for the family's dinner tonight. She decided to do the big cooking tomorrow since that is when we usually do it anyway. I hate it when the schedule is messed up around here!

Here is today's Parakeet blog!

Today we are going to learn about the Crested Budgie. I have to thank Ms. Chirps for the suggestion. These little guys sure are cute!

When you first look at these birds you will think that some mad scientist decided to play a trick on the parakeets and give them weird hairdos! Nope! This is a naturally occurring thing!

The first record of a Crested Budgie was from 1920 in Australia. There was no control over exports of birds back then so they were taken to other countries. The first one brought to the United States was in 1938 from Australia.

In 1948 a breeder in Canada stared breeding Crested Budgies. All of the crested budgies in the United States originated from this flock.

There are two categories of Crested Budgies. The Continental Strain has the crest starting just above the beak. The feathers bend down and fall over the eyes. In the American Strain, the crest starts farther up and the feathers stick straight up.

There are 3 kinds of crests ~ The Tufted, The Half-Circular and the Full Circular.

There is a special Budgie that is called the Japanese Helicopter Crested Budgie. Not only does this bird have a crest, but the feather on it's wings stick out too! They are very expensive and from what I read, there is only a few people who breed these birds.

I hope you get a chance to check out the pictures in my gallery. They really are very cute birds and like
Ms. Chirps said, they look like they would need a comb!

Thank you for your time! Please get over to Muffin's page #203943 and leave a vote today!

Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
