I live in an apartment with my three. I feel bad when they're screaming all day, but no one has ever said anything. They generally scream during the day (appropriate noise hours).

I used to live in an apartment with a CAG, G2, jenday conure and 2 tiels. No complaints.

3 budgies and one cockatiel and no complaints.

They have been quiet, but since Einstein has been beeping, I've been worried.

We've had no complaints with Poe, and he can scream something wicked some days.

I periodically check with the resident manager of my building to make sure my neighbors haven't been complaining and he's been ignoring (we've known each other for a long time, and he generally ignores noise complaints about me; just as he ignores noise complaints about crying infants, and running toddlers), and he still claims that no one has made a complaint.

As long as your walls aren't so thin that you can hear your neighbors TV at a low volume setting, there really shouldn't be an issue.

Just don't get anything noisier than a GCC.

I do.
I was concern before buying Amazon to that point, that I was searching for soundproofing materials on other forum. Soon it will be 1 year since Lucky is with us.

Knock, knock: 3 budgies, 2 cockatiels and 1 amazon, so far, so good.

My MIL had her Amazon, same kind as Lucky, in her apartment for years. As far as I know, no one complained. Although, actually, I'm not sure I ever heard that bird make a sound!

I was in several apartments (moved because of crazy roommates or silly ex-boyfriends), and never had any complaints about the boys.

At one point I had a breeding pair of tiels, pet cockatiel, Caique, and African Grey Smile

Merlin (our Grey) is generally the quietest of the three as far as sound volume & screaming goes. He more talks & has his party sound and other home sound effects going on in lieu of annoying sounds.

I DO recommend having a 2-bedroom apartment, so you can have them in the middle room (not right next to a neighbour's wall), this way the sound tends not to travel, and it keeps the usual mess to a small area of the apartment.
