Default Behavior question

I've had jasper for 3 years...I added Mica about 6 months ago. They never seemed close but tolerated each other. Recently Jasper seems to almost bully Mica. Mica will perch next to Jasper..only to have Jasper push her off. He doesn't attack her..he seems not to want her close. Any ideas as to why? I am sad for Mica.

Jasper was alone for many years and was probably happy being a solo bird.
Sometimes this happens when you have an older budgie and decide to get another.

Mica is young and wants to be Jasper's friend -- that doesn't mean Jasper feels the same.

Thank you Deborah
Do you think I should separate them or do you think they might become eventually become friends? Sometimes they will perch together but as soon as Mica reaches out to make contact with Jasper that's when he pushes her away.

How long have they been in the same cage together now?

Sometimes it takes awhile but the older budgie will warm up to the younger one.

If they've only been together a short while, I'd give it a few more weeks unless Jasper begins to actually bully Mica.
As long as he's just pushing her away, he's just letting her know he wants his own space.

They have been in the same cage for about 4 months now. I'll keep a close watch to make sure he doesn't hurt her. Your right ..he doesn't like it when she gets in his face. Hopefully he will warm up to her. I feel bad for little Mica☹️. Thank you again��.
