Actually I googled "red budgie" and I found some pics but no relevant details.
Could they have been dyed?

From my understanding there is no such thing as a Red Budgie as Budgies do not have the required genetics to procude a red or pink mutation. A lot of things can dye a Budgie a red or pink colour such as mineral blocks, being fed specific coloured supplements mainly for red factor canaries or indeed people dying them colours.

Thats what I was thinking. But I thought better get some inputs from the pros.
Actually by mistake I have posted this post under a wrong topic, can the mods please shift this to genetics section.

I have moved it for you.

Genetically you cannot have a red or pink budgie. In the colour spectrum there are 3 primary colours, Blue, Yellow and Red. All other colours are made from mixing the primary colours. The original colour of the budgie is green, which is a secondary colour and that is comprised of blue and yellow. We got blue budgies because the yellow gene went dormant in some birds.

You get a Pinkish Bourke Parrotlet (Neophema bourkii) and if I am correct it is a bit bigger than a Budgie.

Yes, Rosy Bourkes are pinkish. They are extremely cute but not very social. (towards people) Of course, there aren't any red budgies. It is not possible for a budgie to be *naturally red.

I disagree, I know a fair few people who keep them as pets and they are very social towards them, likewise mine frequently follow me around the aviary to see what I'm up to.

It depends on the birds the same as it does with Budgies.
