So I posted in the general talk area, but I figured I'd upload a few videos for you all to see to make sure things seem ok between my budgies. Its hard for me to describe things sometimes, so I wanted to make sure those who kindly gave me advice could actually see what I'm referring to.

For those who don't know, I just moved Pauly, the green budgie in with Bee, the yellow budgie.

Right after this first video was taken, Bee went down to rub her beak on the perch, and Pauly pecked her on top of the head.
Love/Hate thing going on? Lol

I'll be posting a few more videos.

And here... why doesn't Bee just go to the other food dish??? He/she knows it's over there.

This is the most intense bicker they have had so far. Still ok??

https://youtu.be/d_P9uSc1oYw

And, here is another.
Do any of the sounds Pauly is making mean anything?? The clicks? I'm still getting used to the sounds they make. Pauly never made those clicks before. Not until Bee came along.

Please make sure you edit you first post and don't keep replying to your own posts.

I watched the second video and there's nothing to be concerned about. You'll have to learn to not be some anxious with your birds otherwise you'll be constantly posting videos of every little thing.
As you were already told in your description of their behaviour, all of this is normal.
There's no bickering here.
No bird is stopping the other from eating.

I would put some music on so they aren't in silence all the time. And sit back and enjoy your birds.

Hi Mia
Your budgies behavior looks normal to me.
I would highly recommend that you replace the dowel perches with natural wood perches, as the dowels can cause bumble foot. I would also recommend you get at least one more swing, as budgies tend to bicker over those as well. Take a look at this sticky

Oops, Therm and I posted at the same time!

Thank you. I'm still getting used to the forum, so I don't know how to edit my posts yet.

And I appreciate the advice. I just wanted to post a few videos so you all could see, as I stated I'm not too great with describing things, so actually seeing it can sometimes be so much better.

Thank you again.

Thank you for the recommendations!! I will definitely look into getting different perches and another swing. So far neither have noticed the swing, but I'm sure it'll just take time. They are absolutely loving the shred toy lol

Reading through these should help.

Hi Sarah
I agree with the others and can’t see anything to be worried about.
Natural wood perches, extra swing and background music are all good advice.
It also sounds as though you have a dog in there too; just bear in mind that the dog will be something else that they’ll likely be unsure of and looking out for, so another mild stress for them to be managing at the moment.

Thank you!
And yes, I do have dogs we are careful with the dogs around the birds, but I agree. I can imagine the dogs cause them to be unsure.
