When it comes to parrots you won't really find a quiet one (even my cockatiel is easily as loud a a gcc). When it comes to cudliness it all depends on the bird. Some birds love to be snuggled and cuddled with while other despise it ( i got lucky with Cleo). When it comes to overall cudliness these are my top 3, GCC, Cockatiels, and quakers (each can be as cuddly) but remember that it will depend on the bird and i recommend that if you are looking for a snuggle bug that you go to different pet shops and different breeders to see if you find a snuggle bug. Good luck.
I have a Senegal that is 4 months old. She could live ON me. She would want me to rub her neck and hold her 24/7 if I would. She even wants to nap on my shoulder. From what I have read Senegals are suppose to be one of the quietest of the parrots but when I am out of sight she lets out the high pitched screech that will hurt your ears. Overall she is a quiet bird... but I have nothing to compare it to
Thanks guys, I have a GCC now and she is cuddly and not very loud so thats why I like to ask for noise level in comparison to green cheeks. She can be loud and likes to cuddle up to my neck but has only let me touch her with my hands for the first time today when I cupped my hand around her to protect her when I stood up (she was laying on my chest).
I am looking at getting a hand raised lovie, he won't be weaned for another 3 weeks so I have some time to decide, but the place i'm getting him doesn't DNA test so i'm just hoping he's a boy :/
But then my parakeet I had as a child was super snuggly, I'm not sure if more than Foo, but it was competitive. He talked non stop, wouldn't call him loud but it was definately non stop pretty birds, cookie is good, ect.
