Default American X English?? Pictures now Included

Hey guys,

trying to figure out for ages now what does a american budgie X with an english budgie look like??

I've been weighing my budgies for awhile now, and while they have a good diet, lots of exercise and are all under 2-3 years of age- they all weigh more than a "american budgie" should when I look up healthy weights..


Here are their weights I took today:

Kirby (female) who is around 2 1/2 years old weighs 52 g.
Charlie (male) same age also weighs 52g

Daisy- (female) not sure of age weights 38g- but she is very hard to keep on the scale so this might not be accurate..

Ollie- (male) under a year old weighs 42 g


their diet is seed, pellets (I'm trying to convert them onto pellets) and vegetables and fruit which they love..
they get out to fly around the room nearly every day.

Let me know if you would like to see pictures!

We LOVE pictures here! Please,
share photos of your flock!

An English/American cross is generally
a bit larger and heavier than a straight
American, some considerably so.

Hi Sarah....I breed both...for most part crosses are a little bigger,say mid size.They may have regular English spots or still have the American size spots.I have one that came out the same size as American but large spots.I also have one that is just about full English size but has spots only a little larger than good American show size spots.So there is a lot of differences when crossing the two kinds.A good full size English should be seven inches long and large even spots.Half and halfs are about five and a half inches and the American about four.I dont't go buy weight because it can and will vary largely depending on the genetic make up from the parents.A full size English will vary from one to another depending on the style,or if buff,double buff etc.Hope this helps.

To me they look like they do have some English budgie in them, maybe 25 to 50%
They have amazing colours

They are utterly beautiful, but I agree definitely a bit of English in them!

Daisy is probably showing the most English with Charlie second followed by Kirby(but shows nice type style) then Olie with the least amount of English...my guess
