We Love Budgies!
How can you tell if budgies are related? I got two from a rescue and was told that they're siblings, but they don't look ANYTHING alike. They're different colors, and they have entirely different skull shapes (one of them looks very English).

Unfortunately, the only way to tell would be to have a DNA test done on both of them. I don’t know if something of that sort is commercially available for birds.

Clutchmates will come out different colors as a result of inheriting different sets of genes from their parents. If their parents were an English budgie and an ‘au naturel’ budgie, it’s possible that the different head shape could have been inherited by one and not the other. However, I haven’t seen the results of that kind of mating before! Do you have any photos? Would you mind sharing them? I’d love to see them!

do you think special budgie friends can ever be reborn and find their owners again? im having a terrible night and... just... i just need a little hope?? i would give anything to see my precious little feathered friends again......

Hey there, sweet anon! I’m sorry about your terrible night. I think very strongly that when two compatible spirits meet, be it a budgie or a dog or a cat, that when they’re separated they will do anything to be together again.  In time, you’ll find a special little bird with a twinkle in its eye just like your dear one. 
I believe that very strongly. I hope your day improves, dear anon.
