Caboose is on a distinguished road
Default Aggresive budgie

Hello guys. So I got a new budgie. He went through the quarantine process already. When I put him in the same cage he is acting really aggresive towards Caboose. When Caboose tries to get next to him he runs away or tries and like pecks him away. How can I help this? I thought Caboose would be the aggresive one since he's older and it's his cage that tucker was put into.

Hello, what sex is the budgie you bought. Most times when introducing a new bird it is wise to do so slowly. Having them in their on cage but placing the cages near each other. Allow them to interact this way and observe, keep a vigilant eye when they both are together, also be wary that the new budgie is not causing undue stress to Caboose. Many people have separate cages, as I do . I have two budgies in one cage and another in his own cage away from the others. They all have free time to play and interact which they do. But Budget is the third wheel in the relationship.

I would keep them separated for now and slowly reintroduce them to each other, place the cages near each other so caboose can gradually become used to another budgie being around.

Did you introduce the two birds gradually in neutral territory?

You need to separate them as Pretty boy has indicated and then follow the advice in the thread for introducing two budgies.

If, after being introduced slowly, Tucker is still aggressive then you will need to house them separately on a permanent basis.

Caboose is the one I have had for a few months now. He's the one trying to be nice and be Tuckers friend. I did put their cages next each other and caboose kept running towards Tucker. And it looked like tucker was trying to escape his cage to see Caboose. So I finally put them together. So when Caboose is trying to get next to Tucker he like pecks him away. Doesn't fight just pushes him away. I'll try and get a video.

Have you tried introducing them in neutral territory? Don't put one in the other's cage, but in a third cage or area. This way neither will feel their territory is threatened.

My current two got introduced when I left the room with Peewee's quarantine cage open and came back to find she'd made herself at home on Chachi's play gym (oops).

"Gentle" was a concept lost on Chachi with my last bird so it was a surprise when Peewee took the dominant role and pecked and lunged at him despite his efforts to love her. I had a lutino once that had did the same lunging thing when she was being flirted with so I chalked Peewee's behavior up to sassy lutino genes.

Any who... If I had to hazard a guess, I figured she was just holding her ground since she was in a new, uncomfortable environment and didn't want to be taken for a weakling by her new flock. I'm not sure seniority plays a role in pecking order as much as personality does, at least not that I've ever noticed.

If neither of them are getting hurt and they seem to get along for the most part I wouldn't worry about it too much. Worst case scenario they get separate cages.

This article has some good info to keep an eye out for:

It's not to bad. They have been sitting really close to each other. Tucker just starts to peck or lunge when Caboose tries to groom him or give him a kiss. They are groom themselves right next to each other right now. They eat the millet together. I guess Tucker just doesn't want Caboose to touch him.

Can i just point out that i love the name choices? Please tell me they are both blue... or blue somehow. I would say if you get a third, they have to be named Church... or a female, Tex. This... haha gosh i love the names.
as for the topic at hand here, the others have given some good info. Just keep an eye on them and if they start to fight, keep them in different cages and let them be together when you are watching... BB and Commander Peepers were like that when i first brought Peepers home... but within a week they were inseparable.
Only time will tell...
