Unhappy

Hi i am new here and i hope i posted this at the right place The problem i have is that Rain , my only male budgie is bieng a bully to Bud and Snow. So what should i do and is this normal? My budgies are scared of my hand and are not tame, even though they are getting braver, . when we got them they were almost half dead but now they are doing well.
Please tell me what i can do about Rain i am worried because he is not letting the others eat

If the others are being bullied to the point where they are actually unable to eat, remove him to a different cage. You can keep the cages side by side so Rain has some companionship while you decide what to do.
In the future, if imminent injury or starvation is looming, just temporarily separate whatever critters you have that are having problems- budgies, dogs, kitties, etc., while you figure out what to do.

I agree with Lucille.
Your budgie Rain needs to be kept in his own cage as he's causing serious problems to your other budgies welfare.

Welcome to talk budgies. We would love to see some pic's of your bird's. Sometimes uneven numbers, especially if both sexes are present can lead to problems. How big is the cage you have them in ? How many different food dishes ? As the other's have said if he is being too much of a bully, and you cant rectify it, then you will have to put him in a separate cage...

Hello and to talkbudgies! I agree with everyone else. If it is serious, I would think moving them into a separate cage would be the best way to go.

Are you asking how to catch them? I use a small butterfly net for my not tame birds. The net part is deep, I'd estimate 12-14 inches, so the bird gets to the bottom, I close it off and transfer, eazy peazy.
Here is an example, the handle on mine is shorter. You can get them cheaper, this is just the first one I saw.

Professional Insect/ Butterfly Net

The dollar store has in expensive butterfly nets and you can cut handles shorter as they are so inexpensive. You really need to become proficient at catching and holding your birds for normal hands on chores or vet visits. Your birds will not hate you. They come to understand who is flock leader and that they do get safely released when we are done. When you prepare your birds to visit the vet remember that a hard to deal with bird will not get as good a check up as the bird who sits on the vets hand. Our vet love to interact with our birds. He can get the job done and enjoy your beautiful well behaved budgie. Blessings, Jo Ann

You really need to move Rain as soon as possible for the health and well-being of your other budgies.


If you are unable to get the net today, then wait until it starts getting dark outside, close the blinds, dim the lights and catch Rain using a soft cloth.

Talk calmly and reassuringly to your budgies the entire time you are doing this. Transfer Rain into the new cage.
