Default Bossy budgie

My female budgie Pickett is acting a bit aggressive toward my male budgie Phoenix all of a sudden. They usually preen each other and cuddle up and hate to leave each other’s side, but recently she has been screeching at him when he gets too close and bites at him when they’re eating. He hasn’t been hurt but her behavior is worrying me a little. I’ve heard female budgies can be bossy but she’s never acted like this before?

How old is Pickett?
Is she currently going through a molt?
Has she come into condition?

If she is molting and/or in condition, then her behavior may become more aggressive.

It's important you keep a close eye on her to ensure she doesn't become overly aggressive or bossy with Phoenix. If she does, then it would be best for you to house them in separate cages and only give them supervised out-of-cage time together for awhile.

She is about 6-7 months old and she may be beginning a molt. I’ve been keeping a close eye on her and I will separate them should things escalate.
