Default English Budgies

I have been contacted by someone regarding rehoming 10 English Budgies. Do these require more space than an American budgie? If so, how much?

Just on size alone they would require more space. They are larger birds that American Budgies.

It's really hard to say how much space they would take, but definitely go over the minimum.

Yes, I'm aware of the size difference, but I've never actually owned one. Been frantically googling them, but care wise doesn't seem to be much difference between the American and English budgies.

There was a very helpful person who was able to provide me the square footage needed per bird plus the final measurements that the cage should be last time I had a similar question, I'm hoping they will show up here!

You don't really need that much more space for a Show type budgie. If at all, they seem to be more laid back and do not fly back and forth as much as a normal pet type.
The bigger ones sometimes do spend more time on the floor of the cage so you'll need to have a grill separating them from the waste on the floor. Otherwise their care is exactly the same as pet types. They are the same species after all .

Here's the link to this site's sticky on cage sizes:
https://talkbudgies.com/housing-budgi...age-sizes.html
I know English budgies are larger but I've never seen anything regarding needing larger cages (I have read that they're also generally less active to maybe that cancels out any increased space need?!)

Other than the size, english budgies are the same as australian budgies(also known an american budgies or wild type budgies)

English budgies are just budgies that have been bred for show.
