What's the training difference in American, English and Australian budgies?

Training or taming? I would think they would all have about the same training ability. I've heard English budgies are generally easier to tame than American budgies. I would assume Australian budgies would be the most difficult to tame, being straight from the wild. Just my personal opinion though!

Hello, English budgies are the larger and more showy looking budgies. These guys tend to be more laid back and not as flighty as their smaller cousins the Australian budgie. American budgies are more or less the same bird as the Australian budgie. Budgies originated from Australia, in the wild they are living in flocks of thousands in some cases. The noise must be huge !
Wild budgies generally come in green and blue to a lesser degree.
The smaller budgies are more nervous, flighty , than their bigger cousins.
This does not mean they are not as good to have, if you buy from a reputable breeder who pays attention to temperament and personality traits when pairing birds to breed you will most always get an awesome budgie that is a great companion for many years to come.

I started with an English he was super chill and never loud or crazy. My Australian is wild as hell. Any time I put my hand near her she flaps and flys and she can dodge a person like a porfesional basketball player. I can defiantly see the difference. She is a wild little baby. Well I think that is what she is. Can you tell me?

Definitely not an English, but unless you live in Australia, she's probably an American. American budgies are a bit bigger than Australian ones.

American and Australian budgies are both considered "wild type" budgies and English are "show type" budgies.

Although both types of birds have the same capability to learn and bond with their owners, you often are at an advantage for English budgies as most of them are either hand-fed or hand-raised, making them more adaptive and receptive to their owners.

American/Australian budgies are also more skittish and flighty, which is due in part to their method of being raised, which usually involves little to no human contact until they are bought at a pet store, which is where most of these budgies come from. They also are naturally more "hyper". I would agree that your budgie appears to be a "pet type" budgie as opposed to an "English" budgie.

Does that make sense?
