Default Pink budgies still do not exist.

Hi members,
Pink budgies still do not existed yet, despite 175 years of domestication.

200th year of domestication: 2040.

John Gould imported first alive wild budgies from Australia, to Great Britain, on 1840.

Any newest mutations ???

I'm not surprised, budgies seem to only have blue-yellow-green. There's no red in there to try and breed to showing, so no way to get some pink budgies.

I suppose they would be similar to the red factor canaries, if there were any ?

You'd have to cross breed a few budgies with a different bird with red in their plumage to introduce red into the gene pool. I don't know of any birds that closely related that could interbreed, but then I'm not a budgie specialist by any means.

Closest you'll get in a budgie is violet factor budgies. And as far as I know, budgies can only breed with other budgies.



The way they make red canaries is by feeding them food with red dye in it. It's not healthy for the birds at all and will eventually kill them.

Are you sure? I thought they fed carotene to them, the stuff that makes carrots orange and beets red etc and is considered very good for you.

And Here is my violet Cobalt Budgie. With the Canaries to get them red you feed them red capsicum..My mother has a canary and it is yellow if she wanted to turn it red or orange you feed them red capsicum or Orange Capsicum... I have never heard of a pink budgie..

My Budgie Indigo.

I read it was developed by...

"The Red Factor canary has been bred for its red plumage ("Colorbred"). The Red Factor Canary was developed by Dr. Hans Duncker (a German Breeder) in the early 1900s by crossing a male red siskin with yellow canary. Some say the yellow canary was a German Roller, while others believe that its ancestor is a Border Canary."

I believe Martha Stewart breeds this variety ?

That sounds right, the birds are fed the colour food to brighten up the colour so they are nice and red.
