All flocks have a bird who will be the boss, when you add a new budgie to th flock then they will have little arguments and tussles to see who is the more dominant .
How big is your cage that the birds are in can you post a picture ?
It is completely normal for them to have disagreements at some time or another, they are normal budgies just like people .

The cage is very big its huge. Its really for a parrot.
I don't think you understand.
Chip the new bird is being picked on by Carlos the male "boss" and Sunny his like girlfriend or whatever.
I put the cover over their cage and I put Chip on a different perch than them. just a perch an inch or two away.
When i turned away they both hopped on the perch. Carlos on one side and Sunny on the other and they started fighting with Chip and Chip wasnt doing anything at all!!! I even found a whole tail feather of Chip's and another one which was completely like chopped into two.
It's insane. I have another cage, but having two cages won't help me.
Plus Carlos turned Sunny into a bully, Carlos himself is a bully. I seperately fed Chip a millet and Carlos comes around and throws Chip off so he can eat it himself.
Hes a bully and so is his girlfriend.
Should I consider selling the pair instead? Carlos has been with us since September but Sunny has been with us for 2 years.
I don't even know Sunny anymore. Her attitude has been completely taken over by Carlos.

Someone please help Im keeping an eye on them too.

Okay guys.
Basically here's the story.
I had Kiwi and Sunny both female for 2 years.
Pretty big cage too could fit several birds.
I bought one male named Carlos and the male's behavior has turned my birds some what mean and Sunny now fights with Kiwi.
Got another bird yesterday and put him in the cage.
Don't tell me about quarantine Its okay.
Kiwi started talking to the new male Chip but Chip is much much younger than my birds and now Sunny and Carlos fight Chip.
I left home for a couple hours and I found a tail feather on the ground.
I also found half of a tail feather which means it was chopped off by a beak and I'm 100% sure it was Chip's.
Chip is still somewhat shy but he eats and hops on my finger and I'm happy with it, but Carlos and Sunny are so rude to Chip AND Kiwi.
I do have another cage but my mom won't let me have 2 cages with 2 birds in each.
Will they ever leave Chip alone or what?
Cause I am constantly breaking fights up and they don't get the message.
Please help me Chip just got herb yesterday from Petco.

I'm able to have them sleep and not bother each other but I'm afraid when I'm at school or something they'll pick on him

Your threads are frustrating to read. You keep asking for help and then ignore the advice you are given by people trying to help you. Why didn't you quarantine the new bird?

If you refuse to quarantine, and you have 2 cages, why are these 4 battling birds still together in one cage? Can't you leave Carlos and Sunny in one cage, and put Chip and Kiwi in the other cage (since you indicated they seem to get along?)

Cueva... is English your first language? I'm starting to wonder if maybe there's simply a comprehension problem at work here, since your questions have actually been answered by several people.

I'm very sorry for your current predicament, these are all things that should have been easily avoided. This website has tons of important information, if you were to carefully read on budgie's behaviour, you would see how much of a bad idea it was to add one male and two females in the same cage. The females would naturally fight each other in order to get the male for themselves.
I won't mention quarantine, but another bad idea was to immediately place your new budgie boy inside the "lions den". Given the fact your birds are in a stressful, hostile and vicious mindset it's only natural they would turn against the poor fellow. Common sense also plays a role here. Not to mention females can also be very territorial when it comes to their cages.
You should have slowly introduced the newbie in a neutral territory, for example during your budgies' out of cage playtime where you could closely supervise their interactions and depending on their behaviour to decide whether they could in the near future share a cage or not.

It's clear you need to separate your budgies on a permanent basis.
You can keep Carlos and the female that gets along the best with him (from your description it's Sunny) and put the other female Kiwi in a different cage with your new boy Chip.

Please do get a second cage for them if you don't have one, because you really need to separate your two couples for good. Do it for their overall happiness and health, it's clear they are all very stressed and bad fighting can escalate and sadly you can end up with severely injured or dead birds.

Aluz has given you expert advice and I really can't add any more. Please separate them as soon as possible or you will have a sad situation on your hands I feel.

Your questions have been answered multiple times by several members.

If you want Chip to survive, you must separate him into a different cage and it appears your only option
is to put him in with Kiwi. Aluz has answered your question very succinctly in her post below.

If your Mom isn't going to allow this, then you need to rehome those two budgies right away.

The bottom line is that the others are going to severely injure or kill Chip unless he is removed from that cage quickly.
I'm sorry if this seems harsh but you need to do what is best for the bird at this point in time.

I'm merging your two threads. There is no point in having multiple threads on the same topic.

If you are unable or unwilling to do what is necessary for your budgie's health and well-being, there is nothing the members of the forum can do to help you and it does no good to repeatedly ask the same question hoping for a different answer.

Please do what is best for the health and well-being of your budgies.

I would like to add, that stomping on the floor to correct unwanted behavior
could be frightening to the birds and will not correct the situation. If it appears to be working it is only because you have most likely startled the birds into it.
The best idea is to separate them as has already been suggested.
