Budgies are all Australian. The larger exhibition type were selectively bred in England so they are sometimes referred to as 'English'. This term is very rarely used in England. The term 'American budgie' is a misnomer

Agreed with Nev! Exhibition budgies are bred to be larger and have puffier feathers on their heads :) (is puffier a word?? lol...more puffy).

For example, he budgie in your siggy is your average 'pet' budgie, and the one in the photo supplied by barrie is the exhibition type (notice the difference in head feathers).

I've heard that the show budgies can be more chilled or friendly :p
I don't know how true this is though.

That's awesome Trelli. None of mine talk yet, perhaps those of you who do have birds that can talk could set up a thread and post videos and we could hear the budgies of the world
