How Long Do Budgies Live?

Answer

How long budgies live varies a lot between birds. After the first two years, budgies can live into their teens if they are kept healthy and fed well. The larger English budgies generally have a shorter lifespan of about five to eight years due to years of inbreeding and changing the birds' natural size.

Budgies are said to live from 10 to 12 years if they are given good care.
For the budgie, one can expect the birds to become 10 to 12 years old if treated in an ideal way, but normally, budgies do not live that long. It is also possible that even optimally kept budgies die very young, many develop tumours that cannot be stopped from growing.
Budgies, or budgerigars, have an average lifespan of 2 to 7 years. They are some that have lived as long as 13 years or longer. Some die from tumors or other natural causes. Many die from accidents and dangers that can easily be prevented.
