That's very interesting, here in NY I'm finding that the size and amount of black spot has greatly diminished. It's tricky to find spots that are larger than this ---> o also, there are usually only 1 or 2 on each cheek even on the normals. I'm all about classic big dots.

Thanks for the wisdom and knowledge everyone!

I think in NY the english are differnt than over seas. I know that the american keets in NY do have the classic big dots,only because there are more greens and blues,I think the greywings and dilutes are less common,and see less cheekdots because of that..I'm also not sure which part of NY you are from,so it could be different from NYC to the other side of the state.

I agree...even 1 of my English (Oliver, in the first pic above) is quite faint on dots. I also agree that they are less common on the dilutes, spangles and recessive pieds. I'm in the western NY area. There are NO English budgie breeders around my neck of the woods. I'm in the process in building my flock up with a violet normal hen, violet rec pied hen, grey/green spangle opaline male, YF2 female, true rainbow male, sky blue female, df green normal male and golden face green opaline spangle male. I just sold one of my first 3 Eng. babies today to a lovely family! They lucked out, they'll breed him in a year or so, he's split with violet and crested!
