Default Female bullying male

I have two budgies, they've been living together for one month. They sit next to eachother, sleep next to eachother and eats next to eachother and they feed eachother sometimes.



Everything is alright, but sometimes the female starts to bully the male till he falls off the perch.


They sleep next to each other calmly, It happens only sometimes. The male is completly calm, he doesn't do anything to make her feel angry.


As I said, she does that rarely. they sleep together and feed eachother, but she sometimes bullies him.


I got two of everything, dishes and so on. but she wants them for herself only, the male doesn't do anything like that.


Anything that I can do to help them?

Depending on personality, some females can be a bit more bossy and by watching the daily interactions between your budgies, you will be in a better position to reach a logic conclusion on your budgies' behaviours and to act if/when needed.
It's important for the owner to be able to distinguish the occasional light bickering from consistent bullying which can escalate to vicious fighting.
There are certain items that can potentiate more aggressive behaviour, if you have a mirror or other mirrored toys, it would be best to replace these by different types of toys. The same thing goes with any nesting/hiding areas. If you have a nest box or any other type of nesting site on the cage, it's best to remove it as well.

If there is constant chasing done by your female on a daily basis and the male is unable to lead his normal life (is hardly able to eat, is chased away from a preferred swing, toy or perch), then for his overall safety and welfare it would be best to house your budgies on separate cages.
If during a fight there is blood drawn, immediate separation of the budgies is needed and the separate living arrangements are best to be kept permanently.

No, I don't have any mirror. I have some normal budgies toys, like bells.. I think the problem is from the nesting box that I placed recently, I asked the pets shop guy before placing it, he said It's okay.


I will remove it. No they're completly calm, they're not fighting at all. but the female sometimes start bullying the male but he's doesn't do anything about it he is friendly. The male lived in this cage for three months, she only lived one month, I brought her home like two months ago (placed them in seperated rooms for 60days).


The male welcomed her in the first week, he didn't do anything. he allowed her to eat and drink, and play with him and sleep with him.


The problem from the nesting box then, I will remove it.

I'm in the same situation. I'm looking after my friend's female budgie which is older than my male budgie and they were very excited to get together since both of them were lonely birds but man does the female get jealous and greedy. Kind of like women lol? haha.

A lot of times they'd be happy and play around. Preen each other, kiss, whatever. But many times the female will just peck at the male and he'll start trying to fly around the cage to escape or fly out if the door is open.

Luckily there's been no serious brawls, my male doesn't fight back, he's very nice. They have separate cages luckily and I NEVER let them sleep together. At first they were sleeping together but one night they woke me up at 4AM and all I'm hearing was lots of wing flapping in the cage. No clue what they were doing but I separated them when they sleep ever since.

I'm glad you have removed the nest box from the cage.
How are your two budgies getting along now?

The problem might also happen due to possible reasons:
1) hen ready to breed n cock may not be ready or not in a mood... Here females can show aggression.. So give them time together n remove nesting box if any.. N limit the daylight hours
2) less availability of food or perches or toys..
3) avoid sudden movements n loud sounds near cage...

Rest we would love to see your budgie pair please... N keep bringing their behaviour to our notice..
(Budgies are cute little loving birds)
