Congrats! I love the English birds but stopped breeding them because they're just not healthy enough and don't fly too well in an aviary environment at all. Are they clipped with their flights growing back in? Only reason I ask is because it looks a bit like FM from here!

Oh that would make more sense then haha! I was going to say I've seen a lot of English budgies with French Moult. English budgies are common over here in England (if you hadn't already guessed haha). Do you pay more for them usually?

Can you share why you like the english breed more than a standard budgie? Is it behavior? Personality? Size? All of the above? More?

Just my thoughts. I LOVE the English budgies. They're bigger, poofy, considerably more docile and gentle. I used to breed them myself but having bred them for quite a long time now, about 15 years, I can happily say that they don't live as long and don't breed as well. They have a lot of health issues and are harder to manage. As a companion parrot, wonderful, but an aviary bird not so much

I have a couple of friends who breed the big english budgies for shows, the birds are more docile and laid back but then they get almost daily hands on while they are being raised as they want the bird to be quiet and not jumpy in a show cage.

Its sad the health issues these beautiful birds have as it does lead them to live a much shorter life then the standard size budgies.

From what I've been told the english budgies will and can live longer in a home life as they aren't expected to breed to make more show budgies. A quieter more active life in a persons home can do wonders for these birds.
