Default Are Male Lutino and Albino Budgies....

...much rarer (harder to find) than their female counterparts?

It probably depends where you are. There are definitely more females than males bred. due tot he way it is inherited, but I wouldn't say the males are rare.

I read that there are about twice as many female lutinos/albinos as male lutinos/albinos. Is that true?

No, I do not believe that is accurate.

Take a look at the information regarding inos in this link:

As Toni said, the reason that females seem to be more common is because of the fact that Ino, like Opaline, Cinnamon, and TCB, are sex-linked genes. Thus, any male with the gene won't show it unless it has it on both X chromosomes whereas females only need one copy of the gene to show it visually as they only have one X chromosome

In other words, what you're saying is that, there is twice as many visually Inos females than Inos males.

No, it just means that it is more likely for an Ino to be a female. However, statistically, there is no evidence that there are twice as many females as males that are Ino. It depends completely on the amount worldwide of budgie pairs that are able to produce either only Ino females or Ino males and females
