Default Mother budgie attaching the father

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I have a pair of budgies and they have 2 babies. The elder one is 15 days old and the younger one is 12 days old. Recently mother budgie started attacking the father running after him all around in the cage most of the times. She's never been so aggressive like this before. Do anyone know why is she doing this and what should I do to stop this?

Please remove the Female (Mother) from the nest into a separate cage.
The female is becoming hormonal and may begin attacking the chicks as well.

The male (Dad) will raise and wean the babies at this point in time without the female's help.

You should be ready to step in with supplemental feedings if required.

Ensure your budgies are getting the proper nutrition by offering a high quality seed mix, safe vegetables and egg food.

I agree with the above advice.

From two weeks old the male budgie can raise the chicks. The youngest is a little younger than normal, but only by a couple of days, but given the circumstances, it'll be for the best.

Thankyou guys. I got the female budgie separated for 2 hours and put her back in there. She's not attacking him now and the babies are also fine. Thank you once again.

I would remove the hen until the chicks are fledged. At this point the cause of her attacking is likely to be because she is becoming hormonal ready to lay again. This will not change after just a couple of hours, she is likely to be a bit calmer due to the stress of the environment change and will settle back in soon and resume her aggression. The only way to be sure she doesn't kill the male or the chicks is to remove her for a longer period of time, until the chicks have fledged.

That's not the advice you've been given.

You should keep the male and female apart for the safety of the chicks and parents.
You're endangering their lives by ignoring the advice given.

Removing the hen for a two hour period is not adequate. She needs to be removed to allow the Dad to care for the chicks as was explained.

Failure to follow the advice given has put your cock and the chicks in danger.
Simply because the hen isn't showing aggression this moment doesn't mean she won't and she may severely injure the cock and/or the chicks.
