English Budgies Raised At Royal Wings Aviary

 English Budgies at Royal Wings Aviary

Royal Wings Aviary is the proud host of the Michiana Elite Bird Fair and a member of the American Budgerigar Society and the Budgerigar Association of America.  We raise English Budgies.  All of our baby birds are handfed and socialized.  We sell our babies throughout the Midwest from our Michiana aviary and at bird fairs in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Missouri.

 Appearance of English Budgies

English Budgies are much bigger than regular parakeets, or American Budgies.  They have more bulk to their bodies and usually have a “beard”.   We have a variety of colors ranging from violet and blue to white, gray, and yellow-green.   Some of our English Budgies are pearl, some are pied, some are opaline, and some are just regular English Budgies.

Talking English Budgies

I have read that English Budgies are the best talking parrots.  Truthfully, I thought there was no way that could be true.  How could they possibly compare to African Gray Parrots,   the best talkers of all?  Then a very special baby English Budgie was born in our aviary.   He clearly begged to be with humans over other English Budgies.  I took him to school, and my students fell in love with him and named him Blueberry.  One day a friend came to visit and immediately saw that he was special.  She wanted to buy Blueberry, but I told her he was a pet.  My friend was very persistent.  She kept asking until I finally sold Blueberry to her.  That was the best decision I could have made.  My friend had the time to work with Blueberry and give him a loving home.  Now Blueberry talks constantly.  I always chuckle when he says, “Frank is stupid” loudly and clearly.  You see, Frank is her husband.

Male or Female?

It is very easy to tell if a mature English Budgie is a male or a female.  If the cere is purple or blue, the budgie is a male.  If the cere is brown, white, or tan it is a female.  I have found both males and females to be equally good pets.

  7. i! I was wondering if you have any extra friendly english budgies like blueberry was. Also do you have any cobalt blue or violets( a bright hue of ). also do you send birds?

    • Diana,
      Blueberry was very special. We have one beautiful blue male who is a sweetheart. We also have a baby that we just pulled and are feeding out. I don’t know whether it is a male or female yet. We also have other pairs on eggs. All of our babies are handfed. If you want to work with your English Budgie to teach him to talk, you will probably want a baby. Yes, we do ship but need to wait until the weather is warmer) Pam Sysinger

  8. I talked to you guys the other night about emailing me some pictures of the English budgies you have that are available for purchase. Just sending a follow up email. Thank you in advance for your help.

  9. We are interested in a male English Budgie. Are they 100% English? How old are your males? When are you going to be able to tell which ones are males from the babies you currently have? We live in a south suburb of Chicago? Where are you located? Thank you.

  10. Hi,

    I’m looking for a budgie in the Boston area. Do you ship here? If not, could you recommend a breeder?



  11. Hello, I am looking for two English budgies not from they same clutch-one male and one female. Do you ship as I am in Washington state?

  12. Hello! My name is Mariah and I am very interested in a female English budgie. I have a mating pair and a young male lutino – I want to get him a girlfriend. I live in Bloomington and would be willing to meet you up there or meet in-between. I will also have several hand-raised babies available for trade in a few months :)

    • You would probably want to pick up your bird since you are within driving distance to avoid shipping costs. Pam Sysigner

  13. I currently have an American budgie who isn’t super friendly. He makes cute little sounds and I enjoy watching him but I was hoping for a friendlier bird. He was going to be sold at a pet store, but had a hurt leg and couldn’t be sold. The leg is completely fine now. Would an English budgie make a good friend for him AND for me? Or would he be happy with a cockatiel caged separately (or together?) in the same room (as I’ve read that cockatiels tend to be cuddlier birds)? Or would it be best to get him another American budgie friend so he has company, and then get myself a friendly cockatiel from you?

    • A friend of his own kind would be great. For you, I recommend a cockatiel, although English Budgies can be good buddies, too. Pam Sysinger

  14. Would you ever happen to come to Missouri for bird fairs? If not, would you know of a breeder somewhere close to southeast Missouri. I would love to purchase a hand fed budgie but I’m having no luck finding a breeder anywhere near me.

    Do you have any baby budgies right now? How much are the males? Are you located in Ohio?

If you could, e-mail me please because I have a lot of questions.

  40. Hi! I would like the price and info on 2 ( male and female) handfed English Budgies. My mom raised budgies when I was a teenager many years ago, and I would like to breed them. I have shown and bred dogs during my lifetime and would be interested in showing my birds if they would be show quality. I love the white birds, blue and purple with a lot of white. I am not sure of the color names, I do need to study that. Do the birds have written pedigrees and papers like dogs have?


  41. Do you have any shows you will be coming to in Missouri coming up? I’m interested in an English budgie. Just lost our African Grey

    • Sorry to hear about your African Grey. They get to be part of the family. We will be at TASC May 30 but have no Missouri shows scheduled. Pam

    • Marina,

    • Angela,
      I have handfed English Budgies ready now. You are within driving distance. I am located 5 minutes off the Mishawaka exit of the 80/90 Toll Rd. Give me a call. 574 273-1767 Pam Sysinger
