Question Need some ideas

Looking for some ideas.

My rescued flock consist of mom, dad and two sons.

One of the sons is starting to fight with dad and trying to "get moms attention".
I am wondering if I should move the son and his brother into their own aviary or find a companion for the son who is engaging with dad and driving his mom crazy.
The aviary door is open all day for free flight in the room.

I do not breed, there is nothing available in the aviary to encourage nesting etc.

Thoughts or ideas would be appreciated, I want to be proactive so neither wind up getting injured.

It is not a good idea to have one female in with three males.

My recommendation would be to house the female in cage of her own.
This will ensure there are no unwanted eggs and the males will not injure one another fighting for the female's attention.

Or, as you indicated, you can separate the two "boys" into a cage of their own and keep the female with her partner.

We'd love to see some pictures of your flock!

Deborah is right in her statement. If you don't want a new companion for the son, place the brothers in their own aviary as you thought. The fight can get ugly if you don't take appropriate measures.

Your young budgie has started to mature and is following his instincts, budgies will display and try to mate with any opposite member of sex, being related doesn't matter to them. There for I advise following the information FaeryBee has posted .

^ this. Now that the boys are mature, they need to be separated from Mom, or Mom needs to be separated from them.
