American budgies usually range 25 to 35 gms+-, while English average 45 to 60 gms. We have had some large English up to 80 gms and some of the small newer mutations like fallows and Crests at 40 gms. Age and molting or breeding cycles can effect this. Up to 2 yrs Chicks body shape and weight change rapidly. Our English chicks Fledge usually between 50 and 60 gms but then loose during weaning and body elongation in prep for first flight. Parents gain weight to prepare to feed chicks. So consider overall life stage when judging weight. Keep a record as it will help vet if budgie becomes ill. Blessings, Jo Ann:p
