Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

Hello Ike,
I hope all is well.
Very cute buddy you have over there. I breed English budgies and by reading these topics come up with couple of ideas:
1. Do you have any pedigree on you boy? Your idea with "pure grey line" won't work if he has some crazy genetics in him.
2. If you want to keep exhibition quality, big head, nice spots, do not breed him to albino, because rare mutation (ino) reduce size of chicks and if you aren't focusing on albinos, it won’t benefit you.
3. I would advise to find a great hen of any color, that has nice exhibition quality in her and pair up with your boy. Most breeders breed grey to any colors (almost) to clear up the coloring, spots, and feather lines
Good luck!
