Default Skipper the mad bomber!

As most of you know, Peachy is my "people-bird" and the one of my flock most closely bonded to me. Peachy has been on road-trips with me and likes to spend most of his day just hanging out on me as I go about taking care of things in the house.

Skipper has always watched Peachy very closely and decided I was "safe" since Peachy is on me all the time. Initially, Skipper kept wanting to play with Peachy, but Peachy has no use for any of the birds -- he only wants his Momma.

I got Scooter so Skipper would have a little friend to play with and Skipper and Scooter have become best buddies. However, Skipper has not lost his interest in Peachy and the last week or so has become determined that if Peachy is on me, then he (Skipper) needs to be too!

This wouldn't be a problem if Skipper would stay on one arm/shoulder while Peachy is on the other, but Nooooooo -- Skipper wants to try to land on top of Peachy, be right in Peachy's face and business and in general do everything he can to annoy him! Peachy wouldn't bother with Skipper if Skipper kept his distance, but whenever he gets too close, Peachy tries to bite him. (Peachy does this with any of the birds if they get too close to him)

Since Skipper and Scooter's cage is downstairs and they have the doors open all day if I'm at home -- things have become quite challenging. I cannot play with Peachy downstairs unless I'm willing to constantly be fending off Skipper's dive bombs, attempts to land on Peachy's head or sneak attacks.
Little Scooter, on the other hand, goes about his own business playing and entertaining himself and ignores all the ruckus.

Because of the on-going incoming advances, it made me think a new picture was in order...

OH Deb that is priceless, I can just picture the story happening as you described it. I had a chuckle to myself as I was reading the thread and then that picture comes up

Oh wow, this new picture has reached the highest pinnacle of cuteness, I love it!!
Also on the whole budgie - lovebird business, my Luigi acts the same way as your Skipper, he has too much energy and playfulness and also is too intense when interacting with Khaleesi. Luigi also tries to land on Khaleesi's back, the only difference is that my lovebird does nothing to protect himself and never fights back, he just takes off and when he's fed up with Luigi, he just comes back to me. Now I only allow them very short visits of about 10 - 15 minutes together. I'm only glad Luigi doesn't actually bully and peck Khaleesi like Leonel started doing after I got him a mate. Luigi just shows too much "silly young love" in his interactions and Khaleesi doesn't necessarily like it.
And no matter what, just like with you and your Peachy, I always come first for Khaleesi and I will always be his best mate!

Skipper sounds just like Chip!! We don't walk around with the cockatiels (because they have poor balance and can't fly) but when they are in/on the cage he wants to talk RIGHT to their faces! they get annoyed, but are very passive so they just run away or "lunge" back, but they would never bite him. When they lunge, Chip thinks it's a game and that they are bobbing back to him and he just continues to annoy them. Poor tiels

Aluz, thanks for your message. You'd think with Skipper having Scooter to play with he could leave poor Peachy in peace but he seems to delight disturbing him as frequently as possible.

For such little fellows, budgies sure have a lot of attitude!
