The best thing you can do right now is rearrange their cage every other day.
That means moving the perches, toys, food and water dishes, etc.
**Be sure you limit their daylight to no more than 8 hours per day.
Limit protein in their diet during this time period as well. Give them lots of healthy vegetables and be sure you have a cuttlebone and mineral block in their cage.
Are either of the budgies currently in condition?
Have they been eating their cuttlebone more than normal, or chewing/shredding toys more than normal?
Hopefully, the recent mating attempt will not result in any eggs.
IF Claire does lay an egg, then remove it as soon as you see it, dispose of it and again rearrange their cage.
Let's see if doing all of the above will eliminate the mating behaviors and prevent the necessity of separating Jamie and Claire into individual cages.
Please keep us informed on how things progress.
