changing crown color

Our two parakeets have spent time outside in our sunroom. We keep them up high so that they do not get any direct sunlight but just a well lit room. Both birds crowns have changed to a beautiful salmon color. This has just happened the last couple of days. Any reason why? Should we not keep them in the sunroom?

Budgie crown color

Budgies do not have a way to produce red pigment. Look for a colored toy or some other colored item that could die their feathers.
