They are the same except for size. If a six foot man and a five foot woman have a child - would it be short or tall. It just depends on the genetic combination.

because of the size difference would it be better to have the female be the bigger one, or the male? or because of the size difference the female might be wayyy more aggressive?

If we were talking chickens - I could tell you it would not matter because the size of the egg is determined by the female. I am guessing here that it would be the same with keets.

Does not make any difference what bird is English. English parakeets came about for showing purposes. They were breed to be a larger parakeet. Usually English parakeets have a shorter life span but by how much I really could not tell you. I have both English and standard parakeets. We did have an egg from a 1/2 English budgie (the female) who is actually the same size as a normal parakeet and a normal parakeet was the male. The female was a pale blue with light gray wings and the male was a standard green. The baby ended up looking exactly like the female parakeet. We named him Beaker and love the little guy to death (not literally). We seperated him from the flock (10 parakeets) and raised him upstairs with our 2 cockatiels. He now thinks he is a bonafied cockatiel which is hillarious. He makes all the same sounds and is even saying pretty bird (mainly taught to him by the tiels). Anyway got off subject here sorry.
Like I said makes no difference do lots of reading on subject before you decide to have a clutch there is lots to learn.
