Default My budgie, Perry, more aggressive

Hi, my budgie, Perry, has started biting me more, and the bites are far more aggressive than it has ever been, but I started realizing he has been courting with Cyan, the female budgie, more often, as well as feeding each other, and I was wondering if he's more aggressive because of hormones. Thanks!

I'm no expert, but hormones can make budgies more aggressive than normal.

Yes, a change in hormones can definitely cause more aggression in a budgie.
Are you being vigilant in discouraging breeding at this time?

Actually, I plan on having them breed, so I am glad that this is happening!

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

Many factors must be considered prior to making the decision if one plans to do so ethically and responsibly.

Questions I would ask at this point include:

What is your experience level with budgies?
How old are each of your budgies?
Are you certain they are not related?
Do they have the proper temperaments to breed?
Do you have an Avian Vet with whom you have a good relationship in case there are problems of any sort that arise?
Have you carefully researched the intricacies of breeding?

My experience is not expert like, but I know enough
Each of them are both a year and a half old
Yes, I am sure they are not related to prevent inbreeding
They get along just fine as well
I know an Avian vet nearby that I put my male in before, because I found him on the sidewalk when I first found him, so I took him there to make sure that he wasn't sick
And I have researched the pros and cons of breeding, and all the information I need

I'm sorry but there is no such thing as too much research.
You may think you "know enough" but if and when the time comes that your budgies do breed, it is very important you be prepared for every contingency.

We have multiple members who think they know "enough" that suddenly panic when situations arise they are least expecting.

For the sake of your budgies, I hope you will open your mind to continued research and learning.

I strongly suggest you carefully review all of the information in the threads below:

From the questions you have asked during your stay here at Talk Budgies, you seem to be fairly new to budgie ownership: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-behavi...o-like-me.html

It's not at all advisable nor recommended to jump into breeding so soon and without having a good empirical knowledge on the species that comes from the real life experience in budgie ownership.
Being able to read and interpret body language and all the different behaviours is extremely important. This combined with the required research into the subject will truly make a difference.

The decision to breed comes with a whole lot of responsibility and commitment, the lives of the breeding pair(s) and the chicks are depending on you and the response you give if/when faced with adversity.
Things like being able to tell if your breeding pair is in good health and top physical condition to go through breeding; when a hen is expecting an egg or if she is showing the first signs of being egg bound; when a chick is having developmental problems, not being fed or showing signs of dehydration;
when there is aggression, abandonment and neglect of the chicks and it's solely up to you to feed and raise the chicks. The ability to detect early on and solve these issues can truly make a difference on the outcome of your breeding journey.

Knowing basics about budgie care and knowing what to do in an emergency during breeding are two different things.

While you might think that the response from staff seems heavy handed, far too often, it is left to members and staff with experience in breeding to bail out people who have come into a situation they were truly not ready for.
Even those who know can find themselves having a hard time.

We are thinking of your birds best interests first. Just because they go into breeding behaviour and patterns doesn't mean they should be allowed to breed. This is why cats and dogs are spayed/neutered so it prevents excessive breeding. it's an animals instinct to breed, but a pet owners we have a responsibility to make sure it's for the benefit of the animal involved, not for ourselves.

Your two threads regarding your budgies current behavior have been merged.

Please keep all additional questions regarding breeding in this thread.
