Default is it easier to tame green vs blue or other color budgie

I wanted to know does any color budgie is easier to tame. Also are male more easy to tame than female budgie? If yes what's the reason?

I don't think the colour has any baring on the taming of a budgie. Usually speaking or so they say ! Males are not as feisty or bite as much. But let me tell you we have many members here who have absolutely darling hens that talk and interact wonderfully. My own belief is it depends on the individual budgies personality. Also if they have been handled as a chick and raised by good parent budgies.
Reputable breeders try to take the most care to pair their birds to breed strong, healthy and social able chicks that grow into a happy healthy budgie.

No, there is no link between a budgie's colour and its level of tameness.
It all comes down to the budgie's very own personality and temperament and this goes for both genders.

I have a hen since January and I m still unable to gain her trust. She just perch on my finger and soon runs towards her perch. I can perch her for long time also I can make her out of cage but she always wants to go back to cage. When she is in the cage and when I m in room moving she started going back-and-forth. She is also scared of me while eating her food. When I go near her cage she don't feel comfortable. It's been long time now like this, I got her from petco. Any one has budgie from petco whose budgie is tamed successfully? I have a feeling that when she was young she had some bad experience with humans.

Thank you pretty boy and Aluze I thought the natural green budgies are easier because there is no mutations on them and I thought they are real budgies. The other colored budgies may have genes from different birds that's why it's difficult that's what I thought. Thank you for clarifying.

Hello again, your little hen's cage is her safety and it is here she will naturally want to be.
Have you covered the cage on threes sides with a blanket? This also helps them settle.
usually running back and forth along the perch or bottom of the cage means the budgie wants to be out of the cage.
All budgies have their own personality just like people do so it depends what she is like.
Do you sit next to her cage and just read out loud to her? or sing. Silence is a sign of danger to budgies.
When you have your hand near the cage hold some millet and get her to eat it from your hand, she will then trust you to feed her.

I used to put cover during but it looks she don't feel comfortable she hunched on her perch when the cover is on. Now I put the cover in the nighttime only. Since the cover placed on top of the cage she don't like something over her head. She only start running back and forth when I am near her cage otherwise she sits in her perch does her cleaning, stretching etc I used to sit next to her cage on the chair but right now I'm not too much. There are noises in the room but no kids noise or anything. Very nice environment for, lots of food, clean water, toys, mineral block, cuttlebone etc... She does eat from my hand, millers but for seed I hold the dish near her.

Hold the millet in your hand she will start to stay on your when she eats it. Keep sitting near her so she hears you all the time You are doing very well by the sounds of things.

Hi there
She eats from your hand so she does trust you to some level. She may just be skittish and the best way to make her calmer is to spend as much time as you can with her. I would increase the amount of time you spend sitting by her cage. Is the cage movable? If it is, you should move her to wherever you are so she can learn that you're part of her "flock". Make sure to not move suddenly and always speak to her in a low voice so she feels safer.

It's okay if she doesn't want to cuddle! Also, how old is she? Is her cere brown? If so, she may be coming into condition, which could make her a little less social. Don't give up

Also, budgie mutations are caused by natural changes in the genes which showed up in the birds due to one of four conditions: A lack of melanin in the feathers (leucism), an increase of melanin in the feathers (melanism), albinism, and dilution. All of these categories occur naturally in budgies, and now budgies are "bred" for mutations, whereas the wild-type budgies never have these, as they make the budgie more vulnerable to be spotted and preyed on.
So no, mutations are not caused by breeding with other birds
