The first yellow budgerigar

The first budgerigar variety to appear in the wild among the regular green budgerigars, was the yellow budgerigar. Yellow budgies were reported to be seen in a large flock of green budgerigars as early as 1872. More yellow budgies began to make their appearance in Belgium around the same time. A few years later they were discovered in Germany as well. Yellow budgies became the first common variety next to the grass green budgies that we know from the wild, and they remained the most popular variety for years, until the first sky blue budgerigar was discovered.
