Default Budgies Fighting

Hello

Normally my female budgie is sitting and not doing anything but when she goes to eat anything every time the male budgies comes up jumping around her and kind of try to stop her from eating or interfering because of which they starts to fight with their beak.

There is always plenty of food and also both can eat easily.
They have been with each other for like 3-4 months and apart from eating they don't fight.

Do they have at least two food bowls in their cage?
I'd also give them an additional food dish at a higher level.
You will have to experiment with that and see what works the best.

Yes I have to Feeder and even have a spray millet put higher where both can eat easily but when female the male just come and tries to stop and female eats fast as much as possible before moving away.

Did you get the female budgie after you had the male budgie, and did you put her into his cage once you got her?
it sounds like your male is being very territorial which is usually the female acting like this unless your female is still quite young.
Having extra feeding dishes helps as you have done, perhaps you need to take everything out of the cage and rearrange it, place the female budgie into the cage first and if possible leave her there for a while. It will be quite stressful for her to always have to be on guard an not eating properly poor little girl.
If the situation doesn't settle you may have to separate them or have the male have out of cage time so she can eat in peace and feel safe.

It sounds as though he is a very territorial budgie, has your female budgie come into condition ever yet? Once she is older and her hormones kick in she might become more assertive and stick up for herself, do you let them out for free flight time? perhaps when he is out leave her I the cage and she can eat then freely, or as I said they may need separate cages and have free flight and play time together.

Currently I have clipped their wing to tame them
When they are out they go back inside by themselve as if they are scared to be outside.

I agree with Cathy that if they have to be together, the female needs to be by herself a few times a day in order to have peaceful meals instead of constantly being afraid when she wants to eat. That's very stressful.
I'd really separate them for now and give them plenty of time outside their cage so they can interact together.

Having their wings clipped will make them become stressed as they can not retreat or move away from a threat as they see it. They will not want to be out in the open where they are more vulnerable in their eyes. The cage is their safety so they will want to stay where they are safe.
