The Budgerigar Society

Colour Standards

Since the society was formed (in 1925) it has taken responsibility for defining and describing the various features which make up the ever-expanding number of new varieties of budgerigars that have been bred since this species was first  introduced from its native habitat. Particularly in the last few years, increasing efforts have been made to re-establish the true integrity of each of the mutations that have appeared and been fixed. In 2012 the Colour Standards booklet was published which gives a comprehensive collection of accurate colour illustrations and descriptions.
