The pictures you attached are photoshopped.
Edit to add: And, I agree with aluz that the second picture is not a budgie.

I'm sorry to disappoint you but there are no red budgies in existence.

All color combinations in budgies come from two basic color combinations, Blue and Yellow.

A wild budgie seen in Australia looks like the ancestors of the budgies we now have in captivity.

When you look at pictures of Australian wild budgies, they have a green body and yellow face.

The budgies' feather colors are caused by melanin and psittacin - two types of pigment.

Melanin is responsible for the brown, blacks, greys and other dark colors you see on a budgie, including blue.

Psittacin gives the yellow pigment.

A green budgie is a bird with blue body color with yellow over it. This gives a yellow head (as there is no blue there) and a green body (where the yellow covers the blue).

I agree with Deborah. If you happen to see a pink or red coloured budgie for sale, be aware that the feathers were dyed to make it look more appealing, the dye easily comes off after a bath.

Also the bird in the second photo is not a budgie, it's another species of bird.
Looks like some kind of rosella to me, but I'm not 100% sure.
