Default Baby budgie 40g. Half English budgie with that weight?

So our new girl Ophelia is a baby. Still bars down the the cere and black eyes. She is under 3 months old but already 40g. The abian vet examined her and said she is not fat at all but could be part English budgie.

So two quick questions:
1) Could a regular American budgie ever be this weight at this age?

2) If she is part English Budgie, and she breeds down the line with an American budgie how likely are her children to have that puffy English budgie head ?

Started a separate topic for this because others may be interested in large budgie babies weights
Thanks!

Smile Baby budgie

Yes, to all of your questions. Those fat fluffy English started from a breeder some where starting to increase the size of a particular type of budgie to produce fancy English Budgies we see in pictures of Budgies on the show bench.
At some point a balance must be met so that the basic budgie structure can support the increased size and other features. We may be pushing our English to meet a vision that nature has not come to where Budgies and other birds and animals are concerned. 40 grms is at upper limit of a small budgie and the entry level for an English -50 to 60 gms is normal adult range . A budgie may exceed adult weight at weaning to support the chick while it learns to be responsible for foraging for it self. and then through next 2 years loose and gain weight as each area of the chicks body takes on mature size and function. After 2 years A budgie should not vary more than a couple of grams. Any radical change should be a signal to get an apt for the budgie with your avian vet.
Blessings, Jo Ann
