I was in a pet store the other day and the keets there looked huge compared to mine. Some of them were older I think. Mine is only 9-10 weeks old. Will he grow any bigger? I know that English budgies tend to be bigger but I assume that the ones found in pet stores are all American. Maybe I'm wrong about that, they just never say. How old is a keet when they stop growing?

well, they are sexually mature at 8 months old so i'm assuming that's when they are full grown.

I have been wondering the same thing. Also is there anyone that can tell me the approx age of my keet's? I know they are young I just dont know how young, I was wanting to know so that way I know whether or not they are getting old enough to breed so I can watch for certain behavoir and seperate the males and females if i have to. Thanks smile

You need to put up clear pictures of their eye(s), head and possibly cere to guess their age.
