Default Parakeet behavior

I would let my two parakeets, a female and male, out of the cage from time to time while I kept a close watch of them. I just witnessed that my female parakeet stepped on the back of the male parakeet. When the male walk, its dragging the female that is on his tail. The male would screech similar to the sound parakeets make when they are about to fall.

I wish I had a picture to provide, but unfortunately, I don't

BTW, they were not mating, I know because I have actually saw the male trying to mate with the female but they were too young so I separated them as soon as I saw it happening in front of me.

The female budgie was exhibiting "dominance" over the male in the behavior you described.

I agree with Deborah. She's shoving him around a little to show him "who's boss". I would keep an eye on them to ensure no actual fighting or bullying happens but otherwise there shouldn't be an issue

hahaha, they were getting along pretty well until the male try to mate with her.

Do you guys think that I might have been too late when trying to separate them when they are performing their mating ritual? The behavior the female is having is due to her being "pregnant"? I hope that's not the case because one, she is really really young D: and two, I am not prep for this AT ALL!!

It's doubtful that from one time of mating the hen will lay.

Please be sure you are following all the steps to discourage breeding:
