Greyjoy is on a distinguished road
Default Budgie blitz attack

Greyjoy & Toki just got in a serious brawl, like rolling on the floor fighting. It was sudden & brief & luckily no one is injured. They have been peacefully co-habitating for almost two weeks now so I don't know where this new behaviour comes from. They are now separated. Up until now they have sharing the same food dish even tho there are three, sharing the same toys & sleeping together. Today when I gave them their evening meal they both went to the same dish but Toki seemed to be guarding it from Greyjoy, who went off to eat from another dish, she followed & then just went for it. I am very alarmed and am wondering if her cage can be next to his or if that might be too overwhelming for the both of them right now. I feel like I did everything right in regards to introducing them and watching for signs of aggression so I am very concerned by this vicious fighting.

There cages can be next to one another just leave a gap so that they can't bite one another.
Youve done the right rhing splitting them up.

Kristina, you did well in separating Toki from Greyjoy. Once they are more settled and adjusted to this change in their housing arrangements, you can allow them closely supervised out of cage time together and depending on how they behave you can continue to let them have the play time together while keeping them housed on separate cages.
If you notice aggressive behaviour, chasing and bullying, then you will also have to give your budgies separate out of cage time.

Kristina,

It is best you keep the two cages in separate rooms for a few days.
After that, you can try putting the cages in the same room and gradually move them ever few days until the cages are located next to one another.

Under the circumstances, your two budgies should never be housed together.
Some budgies simply don't get along and it sounds as though your female is quite aggressive.

I agree with aluz that in a few weeks you can try closely supervised out-of-cage time to see how that works out.

Best wishes!

Thanks folks for the advice, it was a very frightening experience for all of us. Thankfully I got them the divided cage so permanent separate housing is not an issue. While I'm sorry it didn't work out, I am glad I was here when it happened so I could intervene.

I know how scary that is, I have had that happen with a couple of my boys when they were competing to be the best buddy of Bebe after Bebe's buddy Opie passed away. Good you were there at the time to intervene.
