    a PINK budgie?

    I found this picture on google, of a budgie with a pink(!) face. I've never seen anything like it in my life, I know bourke parakeets are pink but it's definitely not a bourke, it doesn't look to me like the photo or the budgie have been altered in any way.



    I'm a sucker for anything pink, especially birds, I'd love to know if it's posible to get a pink budgie like the one in the picture above.

    Hmm... I've never heard of a pink budgie, it's possible that they exist... maybe the budgie in the picture just had a pink mineral block or something.... IDK **shrugs**

    A genetically pink budgie isn't possible, but sometimes a bird's feathers can get stained from rubbing against a colored mineral block or certain foods.

    a pink budgie would be very cool......but could someone be playing with one of those programs where you can alter photos?

    A warning to anyone considering clicking the above link: brace yourself or the cuteness will overwhelm and consume your soul, and you'll be fine with that because it's too cute to resist!

    I think i'm going with Shaz on this one. When Opus goes after her pink cuttle done, her whole white cap on her forhead is a dusty pink.

    There was a breeder on here whom was questing for a red budgie, a while ago... they seemed to be colorfeeding them, and he showed pictures... the birds were pink.


    I believe in the big bang theory. God spoke and BANG! it happened.

    true... barrie I believe is his name... however, they aren't genetically pink... most budgies go pink from a mineral block or perch
