Default Male vs female

Are male budgies typically bigger than females or does it just depend on the individual? Zirci is much younger than kiwi but he is much bigger than her in comparison when they sit next to eachother. I do not have a gram scale and am unsure of weights.

You're right that it's completely unrelated to gender

There are countless members around here with really big girls and pretty tiny guys, and as for me, Princess Mallorn is very petite, she's the size of a canary

So yes, it depends on the individual

The size is mostly determined by the bird's heritage (parents' size) and the way they are raised when it comes to the diet they have as chicks while growing.

Just like people, each budgie is unique.

As aluz explained, the size of a budgie is determined by its genes and diet rather than gender.

In one clutch there may be some budgies which grow to be larger (or remain smaller) than the others, depending on which specific traits each inherited from both parents' lineage.
