Default Male budgie on top

Hello guys,

It's been a while since i haven't been able to post here.

Recently my Male budgie is on top of my female budgie and while she is layed down (belly to belly) on the ground holding her feet to feet. I've never seen that behavior of the male. Maybe he wants to mate her badly?

I'm reducing the daylight significantly by leaving the cover sheet that i put every night but it seems they still on the mood. The female still has dark brown cere while I'm giving canary seeds with variety of vegetables.

I separated them for a while just to keep them on from doing that again

Your budgies definitely need to be housed separately for a minimum of a few weeks to discourage that behavior.
From your description, it is difficult to know for certain if your male was attempting to mate with the female or was behaving in an aggressive and bullying manner.
Either way, the behavior is unacceptable and it is obvious from your description of the female budgie's cere that she is currently in breeding condition.

After about a month or so, you can try reintroducing the two budgies in neutral territory during their out-of-cage time. Make sure they are closely supervised at all times and separate them immediately if there is any sign of aggression or mating behaviors.

Perhaps down the road you may possibly be able to house them in the same cage again, but you are always going to need to be very vigilant and ensure you do everything possible to discourage breeding.

It's very new to me that he had that kind of behavior. I can't tell i if its bullying or trying to mate but it only happens in the morning and the first time was afternoon. I thought at first that because maybe the male is hungry and there was no food but the female went down and he started to go at her. One time i heard noise and i already saw them as i described in the last post.

My male is more than 2 years now and i don't know about the female. Should i be worried if its hormonal? I will really feel sorry if i will have to split them for the rest of their lives

Take it a few days/weeks at a time.

Worrying about what "might be" doesn't get you anywhere and only causes you to be stressed when the solution may work itself out if you follow the advice offered.

Good luck!
