Default English budgies not as loud and noisy?

Mink my English girl is now 6 months old. Now that she's been here a while, my observation is, she is not anywhere near as loud or noisy as Twigs the 'regular' budgie.

I was curious as to whether this is a trait of the EB, or if Mink is extra quiet? Are the females typically quieter? She chirps and makes low key noises at times but it is nothing like Twigs' noise. Twigs can almost raise the roof ... and that's saying something cause I have parrots. They're quiet species, but still...

Oh, and Mink is still 45 grams, so at 6 months old I am assuming that is her full weight by now?

Yes, EBs tend to be quieter and more laid-back than American budgies I think it's safe to say that little Mink has reached her big-girl weight, as well, after 6 months.

I find it quite amusing so many people indicate their English Budgies are quieter and more laid-back than American Budgies.

My three must be the exceptions to the rule!
But then again, what else could one expect from secret agent budgies with super skills and adventurous natures.

Sparky, Skipper and Scooter are all three quite loud and vocal. It amazes me how much noise they make. They love to play and Skipper and Scooter use the living room/dining room and downstairs hallway as their own personal Indianapolis 500 Speedway. They zoom around at top speed several times a day.

Perhaps the majority of English Budgies are not like mine. However, I think it's pretty funny I ended up with three that are both active AND Loud.
Each of the three are louder and more active than little Sunny who is currently my only "American" budgie.

I'm also with Deb on this for my birdies are also the vocal exceptions. You should hear how vocal my girl budgies are when they're in condition.

One thing I've learned about how vocal birds in general can get has much to do with the number of birds you keep. When I got back into birds about 2 years ago, I had started with 1 tiel and 2 budgies, Artoo and Chewie, and my house was a lot less noisy then. As my flock increased, well...

But one thing I can attest to about EB from my experience is that they're less frightful and jumpy than pet budgies, which makes them much easier to tame. None of my EBs are handfed, yet most of them don't get all hysterical or evasive at approaching people like "Oh oh, here comes a giant person. Time to scatter!" My most cowardly budgie is Rocco, who I had since last November and he still sees me as a giant ugly ogre! My first EB, Artoo, used to let me handle him but has become more evasive as my flock increased...but he's very friendly to my girl birdies. I suppose thats a trait that he and I have very much in common.

...but I'd say English rock bands are on par with American bands with equal decibel of guitar riffs and bass. Hey, it's by no means a complaint. I use to bang my head to Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest 30+yrs ago! That was the good ol British Steel era of heavy metal

Well, looks like we have a lot of exceptions

But it isn't abnormal, if that was the question

Deb, maybe because Skipper and Scooter have dangerous and exciting "jobs" they know they have to be extroverted go-getter types So Sunny must be your yellow and green pied wearing the hat .

Nick, you always have such entertaining answers . Must you always make us laugh?! Well, I guess it's a lot better than making us cry

Are your girls still fairly noisy even when not in condition anymore? Maybe Mink will get noisier when she's mature. She was getting tame, but now acts like Rocco does with you when I approach lol, and Mink was a hand fed too! She's taking notes from Twigs who I never managed to tame, even when he was a single budgie. He is just one of those hysterical type of budgies that don't trust humans .
