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.

Default Breeding To Improve

How do breeders go about breeding for bigger feathered heads.
Is this a process that takes several generations?
Is it possible to breed for bigger size body and so forth?
Can this take more then one generation? Or do you breed one generation and if no luck go with different cock? Or do you attempt to breed same pair several times before moving on, if no success?

Are we talking pet types or exhibition types?

most of the exhibition types (english budgies) have the larger size and feather in their background. The pet types do not.
To breed pet types would take a serious breeding programme, and several years and generations to make the larger size/feather stable in the generations to come.
