    i never heard albino budgies being sterile. Maybe it was
    just from that one albino that was sterile, hey it happens
    to even colored birds, they may be sterile. But i believe
    this is so because the baby wasn't feed proper greens and
    vitamins, Vitamin E is assentual for birds and their
    reproductive system. Some people may think their birds are
    sterile (like i did) because they didn't produce any fertile
    eggs, but this is so because they didn't feed enough greens
    and eggfood to produce chicks.
