Default Agressiveness

So i have put up a flight cage for my quartet and one of my budgies, snowflake, tends to be extremely aggressive towards anyone who goes near the food bowl. On another note, when food isnt involved, she does nothing but chase Río ariund the cage while screamimg and flapping. Is there anyway to discourage this behavior?

With regard to the food dish, it's always best to have multiple food dishes in the cage when you have multiple birds.

If Snowflake is chasing Rio around the cage on a regular basis she needs to be removed from that cage and housed individually.

When a budgie is that aggressive, it can cause not only physical damage to another bird but emotional damage as well.

Is Snowflake currently in condition?
Ensure you are allowing her to have only 8 hours of daylight each day.
Being housed alone for a few weeks and getting her hormones under control may calm the aggressive tendencies.

There is no other way to place extra food bowls in the cage they have, but i did put a few seed bars around the cage so that there are other food sources. So far it seems to have eased the tension some, only now it starting to seem like Río doesn't interact very well with the others. Milk and Wren may try to feed her and she gets rather agitated and starts screaming. Also when i let the others out to play, she stays in the cage. Río gets along well with me but steers clear of the others it seems.

How large is the cage you are using for four budgies?

If there are problems with the birds getting along then they need to be separated.

Seed bars are not recommended as they have too much sugar in them and lead to obesity.

What diet are you giving your birds?

The cage dimensions are 33"h× 20"w × 22" L.
I feed them a pellet/seed mix and occasionally I'll put fruits/veggies or eggs to try to get them to eat them. Im still training them so they will not eat fruits or veggies yet. The aggressiveness has eased, however.

Your cage really isn't large enough for four birds as it does not meet the recommended minimum size.

Your cage at 22" Long x 20" wide x 33" High
is only 14,520 cubic inches in volume.

Minimum size for 4 budgies:
34" Long x 18" Wide x 25" High
Volume = 15,300 cubic inches

Again, as in my previous post, I'm asking you what diet are you feeding your birds?

As i said in my previous reply, i feed them a seed pellet mix. It contains dried fruits as well. Once a week i give them a small piece of egg (they enjoy it) and i hang some lettuce for them as well.

(On a different note, is it normal for Snowflakes cere to turn light tan when there are only other females present? )

Yes, it is normal for the females to come in and out of condition even when there are only females present.

Please read the link in my previous post regarding a healthy diet for your budgies.
They need to be receiving a variety of vegetables rather than just an occasional piece of lettuce.
It will take time and patience before they try new things though and that is quite normal.

I also recommend you get a larger cage for your birds and use multiple food dishes.

Best wishes!
