Default My female attacked my male suddenly- why?

I have a male who is almost 2 years old. A few months ago we bought him a female companion (she is definitely female with white cere). She is about 6 months old.

Neither one of them has ever bitten. They are so calm and gentle. They never fight over food bowls. Etc. They also aren't bonded though. They don't snuggle or really feed each other. But they get along fine and have always done so since introducing her to him.

His cere has been very dark for a year so he is in breeding condition, and lately he is dancing a lot for her. And three times in the last 2 days she has LEPT on him, pinned him to the ground, and started going at him. I had to break them up. Now I have had to buy another cage and place her in it as I'm worried about her attacking male Sky.

I think he was trying to impress her with his dancing. Could this have made her mad? Her cere is still white and she is definitely not "in condition".

Do they need to be seperate indefinitely? Or will this pass?

Thank you

Hi! to Talk Budgies

You need to separate the two budgies immediately.

The female has shown severe aggressiveness toward the male and could easily injure or even kill him.

Please move them into separate cages right away.
It would be best for you to put them in separate rooms at this time. In a few weeks, you may consider moving the cages back into the same room.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Thank you for your answer. They are separate now

What could have caused her freak out? Could his dancing have been mating dancing and because she isn't ready she got mad? Why so suddenly?

Hi there and to Talk Budgies!

You've been given great advice above. I'm glad they're separated now. It's hard to say what pushed her over the edge, but given that her reaction was so violent, it is unadvisable they ever be housed together.

Be sure to read through the links provided, which include the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

We look forward to seeing you and your budgies around the forums!

Cheers!

Thank you for your reply.

Can she ever be housed with another budgie again? Say, a while from now, if I were to get her a friend is that ok? Or can she never be with another budgie?

Your female has shown severe aggressive behavior and should not be housed with any other budgies in the future.
The reason "why" she became aggressive is not the issue.
Any answers anyone might offer regarding that matter would be pure speculation on their part and really would not have any bearing on the situation.
The fact that female has shown she has aggressive and violent tendencies is what you need to focus on.

Please concentrate on the situation as it is now.
You need to ensure the two birds are housed separately and both are safe, loved and well-cared for.
