Is it OK to have only one budgie?

Do two budgies make more noise than one?
One budgie will be less noisy than two budgies, but your neighbors should not hear them through the walls. If a budgie is distressed or feels lonely, it may be more prone to raising its voice. Budgies are at their loudest early in the morning, where they’ll chatter and chirp to greet the day.
Do budgies like to be in pairs?
Like most parrots, budgies are social birds, and thus many owners keep budgies in pairs so that they can entertain one another. Budgies seem to be happiest when kept in pairs. A single bird can be fine as long as you are able to spend a significant amount of time interacting with them on a daily basis.
Do budgies like big or small cages?
The standard size of cage for a single Budgie is 12x18x18 inches, but bigger is always better. When accounting for two birds, you’ll need to more than double this size to account for the extra toys and flying space needed. This minimum size is also only suitable if your Budgie is tame and out of its cage frequently.
Can you tame two budgies together?
Just let them be together, and they will warm up to you. I have several budgies that are not tame at all, and I never bothered to try taming them. They are happy and active together, so why should I separate them? The only absolute must is to teach them to step up, which is pretty easy.
