:yelling: :yelling:

Hi im new to budgie breeding and was wanting to know if anyone has crested budgies or knows anything about them? I have 4 cresteds and will get more if i can find them, but cannot find info about them. I have 1 blue and 3 green. the blue girl and green boy are sitting on 7 eggs, they r both sharing the box and he comes out to get food for her.

Any info re cresteds would be appreciated.

hi mryks. i fancied having a pair of crested myself. i went last week to the biggest bird market in holland ''zwolle''. there were thousands of budgies going for about 15-20 euros a pair. there was one pair of crested and he wanted 70 euros for them. maybe next year

Dunno. I don't know if there is a differance between crested budgies and show budgies who look like poofy heads! Regardless, i think the pom pom heads look silly!

:huh: I toyed with the idea of putting hair gel in but common sense won the day apart from that I think the show judges would smell a rat or hair gel

An interesting fact getting a little off the topic hair gel is in fact a liquid plastic Yuk

Well I suppose it?s better than super glue or what ever those punk guys use

Do crested budgies have any ailments associated with them? For example, the ones with crest goin over their eyes makes me think of Old English Sheepdogs and how their eyes get inflamed cos of the fur that's constantly in them. Grr, humans just screw up most domesticated animals through artificial selection....

 

And it must be a recessive trait eh. Hmm.
