Haha i think all birds are (generally) pretty noisy
Finches (i think) keep up a constant singing, whereas budgies do a lot of shouting, as well as singing/warbling during the day.
Two hens CAN fight badly... not all will, but generally, two boys or a boy and a girl will get along better then two girls.
As to your other post, generally speaking, budgies dont breed unless there is a nesting box (or something they think of as a nest) in their cage, otherwise they usually mate, but dont tend to produce eggs.
However, it is not unheard of for hens to lay eggs on the floor of the cage, even when there is no male in the cage.
How noisy the budgie is will depend a lot on personality, but generally, males are noiser than females
I have 3 males and 2 females, they will all chatter but the boys chatter way more than the girls. It is a sign of happy budgies, and i love their noise
Roger was "second hand", and unwanted in his previous home.
Please consider giving a second hand budgie a home with your flock!
Thank you tracy (intoxxication) for my new siggy!
