The Budgerigar first came to England in 1840, brought from Australia by the Naturalist John Gould. These wild birds were Light Greens as this was the only colour seen at that time. Light Green Budgerigars were being bred in England and in the 1870's a Yellow mutation occurred and since those early days a myriad of colours and varieties have appeared and have been bred and maintained by the thousands of budgerigar enthusiasts of this and past generations.

An interesting point to note is that the Australian Government soon stopped the export of all birds from Australia and so the Budgerigars in the UK today are all descended from those early imports. British exhibition budgerigars are generally acknowledged as being the best in the world and due credit should be given to their breeders.

At one time the Budgerigar was the number one pet in the UK with the majority of households having a blue or green budgie in a cage. They are still popular today as pets and so too is the hobby of breeding and exhibiting budgerigars, which is enjoyed by about 4,000 people in Britain and many others around the World.
