Question Jealous budgie??

Hello! Well im new here, I got my 2 budgies a week and few days ago and they are settling very well
My question is about their behaviour. So everytime I'd feed Pippin some millets or seeds, my other budgie Merry would look for a bit and then scream like crazy, and that would make Pippin nervous and start flapping around with Merry.
Im a novice in this, but I have the impression that one gets jealous because they are not getting the attention? Or is it a call for help? Or is the other budgie trying to warn his friend because they dont trust us yet completely?
My partner and I believe they are adult budgies because of their eyes, which show the iris.
In general, I want to understand why budgies sometimes scream, they would have a lovely chat between them then start screaming for nothing, and I just want to understand it from other people with more experience than me.

We are also not sure if we have two boys or a boy and girl. One's got very blue cere and the other one had a pink one that was turning a bit blue and now is light purple. I get really confused about this, I know there are a lot of threads about budgie gender so forgive me

thank you for reading!!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

If you are able to post some pictures of your budgies in natural light, someone will be able to assist with their gender and maybe make a guess at their age- dependant on whether they are adults or not.

As for the screaming- that's just budgies for you. While not all budgies are very vocal, the 'screaming' is something that many budgies do now and then.
There is likely a reason why the birds are doing it, but it may settle down as your birds do, but it's likely that you noisier budgie will always have a bit of a shout now and then.
One of my birds, Jay, is very much a shouter, but they all do it from time to time. I often go over to the cage and talk to him calmly to distract his attention. It doesn't always work because he's just being a bird and it never usually lasts too long to worry about.

I agree with Therm. There are a lot of reasons budgies make noise, but at this point in your case it's probably just because they can!

Hi there and to the forums!

Congratulations on Merry and Pippin, they sound like little charmers

As Therm mentioned, we'd be happy to tell you their genders if you're able to upload some pictures of their ceres taken in natural light

Here's a link that will help you do that:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

Regarding the "screaming", I'm assuming you mean the "ack ack ack" sound that they make sometimes? If so, this call can be used two ways--to indicate displeasure or fear, or to indicate extreme excitement. In a way, it is quite similar to the way we use our own scream--it is positive when we scream when there is a new car sitting in the driveway, negative when you were robbed of said new car

Personally, I believe that Merry shouting while you're feeding Pip millet is his indication that he's either excited he gets millet or confused or annoyed at what's going on. It's all up to his body language. If he seems afraid, backing away and putting his feathers close to his body, it most likely is the latter option, whereas if he runs around excitedly or even puffs up his face feathers a bit, it likely means the former.

Either way, it's nothing to worry about. As long as they're showing signs of being comfortable around you, they should be just fine.

Also, be sure to check out the forum "stickies" (important threads stuck to the top of each subforum for easy reference) as well as the Budgie Articles. These contain some great information to stay updated on the very best of budgie care and practices!

If you have any questions after reading through anything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you, Merry, and Pippin around the forums!
