Default Frustrated by behavior

Hi.. My little Ossie (aka Oscar) is about 6 months old and has been labeled a bully by me (she has gender identity issues ) and I've been trying to make this a win-win for her and the others. She is very social and inquisitive, so I try to let her be out with the others during the day. She can't bully either of her parents, so she's either alone at night or with one of them. During the day, she is constantly wanting to be where ANYBODY else wants to be. And.. she doesn't want them to be in that spot anymore.
IF I don't let her be with the others for too long, it's usually ok.
I've come to the conclusion that she needs to be out with one of her parents if she's out for any length of time.
Is there ANY chance she will mellow out with age? She really doesn't like to be housed alone, but I can't leave her with anyone but her mom (who will argue with her.. and I'm thinking this could escalate.. I will watch for that).
.. Ideas/opinions/thoughts appreciated!!

Ossie is Bossy!! (Maybe you should change her name again?)

Has she just gone through a molt and or is she coming into condition?
Either of those situations will increase her tendency to be aggressive and if both occur at the same time --

I think allowing her "limited" time with the others is probably your best option.

Does Cody put up with her behavior or does he stand his ground with her? As long as she isn't in breeding condition, allowing him to spend out-of-cage time with him might be your best choice.

Thanks.. Cody actually seems to like her. I worry about his.. errr.... tendencies, you know.. LOL . I do put them together sometimes and he tolerates her pushing him around (pretty similar to what Lemony does to him). So, that's a good idea.. I hope Bossy Ossie settles down. Bossy is a better name. She's a trip!!
Thanks for listening ... This budgie thing is harder than it looks..
I know I have uneven numbers, but I'm not ready for another hen just now... Bossy needs to settle (I do think her gender identity problems are contributing... lolol)

Let's hope she is trying to find out where she belongs in the flock dynamics and once she is a bit more mature things will settle. I must confess this is one of my tendencies towards having all boys She is a pretty little girl by the way
