BUDGIE PARAKEET LUTINO

Description: The budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) also known as the common pet parakeet or shell parakeet and informally nicknamed the budgie, is a small, long-tailed, seed-eating parrot. Budgerigars are the only species in the Australian genus Melopsittacus and are found wild throughout the drier parts of Australia where the species has survived harsh inland conditions for the last five million years.

Life Span: 10-15 Years

Diet: Commercial Parakeet mix, canary seed, millets, oats groats, fruits and vegebles.

Sexing: A mature male’s cere is usually light to dark blue. Females’ ceres are pinkish as immatures. As they age, they move from being beigish or whitish outside breeding condition into brown

Breeding: Breeding is relatively easy as long as you have a true pair (male and female). Budgerigars feed one another by eating the seeds themselves, and then regurgitating it into their mate’s mouth. Female laid four to six eggs and incubates them for 18–23 days, with the young fledging about 30 days after hatching. Female budgerigars can lay eggs without a male partner, but these unfertilized eggs will not hatch. It is recommended to remove those eggs.
