My family has decided that budgies are a huge delight to have around, and wouldn't it be even more fun to have a bigger flock flying around, playing, chirping and being generally destructive to my room? (haha)
The conflict however is, what has more pros of the two additional budgies in sex options? I have two boys. Are there more pros than cons to getting two females or two males? I've read females might be more troublesome when it comes to dominance/bullying but other articles say this rarely happens, making me feel confused.
So, can people maybe point out the pros and cons for me of an all male group or an evenly sexed group? Thanks in advance!
(I will of course quarantine any new bird for a good period of time and give them preventative treatments to some things such as mites etc. Saying this as I see this gets pointed out to each and every post that is about getting new budgies.)
I would highly recommend getting two additional males rather than adding females to your mix.
By having all males, you have no worries whatsoever about discouraging breeding and all the attendant concerns.
I have four male budgies and love it. They each have their own little personality and quirks and are loads of fun.
Thanks for answering my question! Definitely helpful, I think it's clear now I should get 2 males, I really do not need trouble having to do with breeding as it's something I don't want anyways, I just want to have fun and birds that are always at peace with one another!

Haha it's already deafening here, how much worse can it become xD
Luckily I don't mind bird noise at all.
