Budgie Mutations

Kristin Schnell

2019 - Ongoing

Warnow, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany

In 1840 the first wild budgies were shipped from Australia to Europe. Shortly thereafter the first breeds arrived and the first color mutations arose through mass propagation. The birds originally have a green-yellow color and live in flocks.

The offsprings have many different colors, such as white, yellow and various shades of blue, just to name a few colors.

The originally free-living animals have become pets with a home in our living rooms and nothing remembers their origin.

The photos are reminiscent of old paintings, the beginning of the first breeding in 1850.
