At what age do budgies reach full size?

I had been thinking, apparently incorrectly, that my budgies had finished getting big. Then, about a week-n-half ago, they both pushed out some new tailfeathers, adding about inch & half to each their lengths.

Since then, they've also widened out slightly so they again look proportional.

They're about 9 months old. Are they probably full-size now? Or should I expect further increases?

I would say they reach full maturity size at 1 year old/12 months. They will continue to molt year after year that will grow new tail feathers and lose some, but after a year they're mature.
