Are the rumors about female budgies true?
So I have a female budgie and every single time I take her to get her wings clipped or am around other bird people, they always make a comment about how sweet, nice, or tame she is "for a girl". I have had about four or five people say this to me on separate ocassions. Most recently a person said, "she is really good for a girl, especially an albino girl." Is it true all the implied negative things behind these statements? Generally females aren't as sweet, nice, or tame as male budgies? And are albino girls generally even worse than other colored girls? If it isn't, it makes me sad because that means many people are likely steered away from getting a girl budgie. Thinking of all the little princess Cozette's out there and someone bypassing them just because they are a girl.....I am glad I didn't listen to them. Cozette is virtually a perfect bird. I would have really missed out.
