In over 25 years of breeding budgies, we've never seen anything like this !
It gets Blacker by the Day
As this bird continues to moult out, we see more of it's feathering turning Black.
We plan to pair this bird to another with very heavy Black markings to see if we can produce similar

Coalville Times Report
Coalville Times Report on the Coalface!
This bird was
selected as a baby to be sold as a pet, as it didn't meet our required
standard for a show budgie. It was available for sale for over 4
months, but nobody wanted it ! As it got older it also got Blacker !!!
We are now aiming to
reproduce this phenomenom by pairing it to a related hen.
