Default Jealous Budgie Syndrome?

Over the last 2 days I have been noticing that Storm Trooper almost seems jealous of Bumblebee and Magatron's bond. Whenever Bumblebee is preening Megatron or vice versa, Storm Trooper will pop onto the perch either between them or beside Bumblebee and peck at her.

Megatron has no ill feelings towards Storm Trooper, but when she gets close to him, he will run away.

Should I separate them? And if I do separate them, do I put Jedi and Storm Trooper in one cage and leave Bumblebee and Megatron in another? Or do I just separate Storm Trooper for being a bully to Bumblebee? Being a new budgie parent is harder than being a real parent!

Personally, I would put the males in one cage and the females in another.

When you separate by gender you don't have to be concerned about any "accidental" breeding and unexpected clutches down the road.

Many breeders keep their budgies separated by gender except when setting up pairs in individual cages for breeding purposes.

FaeryBee has given excellent advice, unless you have bonded pairs and are ready to breed this would be much easier to handle the situation. And yes they are like having a young family
