Default Male budgie attack female

Hello..

My male budgie started to attack the female budgie?

They're bonded to each other (Sleep, feeding, mating more often, kissing and so on)

But the male budgie won't have that she goes out of the nestbox! Everytime she is out of the box he will hunt her in to the box and attacking. She wants go out and eat but no. The good thing is that the male fetch food for her (throwing out and feed her!)

The male is more agressive after the mating started!

Male: 1 year
Female: Almost 2

Why do you have a nestbox in the cage?
Does the female currently have eggs?

If not, you need to remove the nestbox and separate the male and female into individual cages.

Just because it's your wish to breed them, that doesn't mean your pair is fit for the task.
The male's already violent behaviour towards his mate is a big red flag and chances are high you will have problems if you are to allow your pair to go through with breeding. By doing so, you will run higher chances of the fighting to escalate, of your female and any chicks to be severely injured/dead.
When there is an overall stressful environment, the chances for clutch abandonment are higher too.

This is why it's so important to take the time in getting to know the personalities/temperament of a given pair to later on reach the conclusion if they are good candidates to breed or not.

If the male is truly being violent, then it would really be best to separate your pair (you need to get a spare cage), place your female on another cage with no nesting areas available and take the steps to break her egg laying cycle: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

If the fighting is intense you really must separate your budgies.
In some budgies, the aggressiveness can come more to surface during breeding time due to the out of control hormones.
A good pair who is physically and mentally prepared for breeding (has the right temperament) will not exhibit violence towards their respective mate.

I'm sorry for being blunt but in my opinion you are not acting in your birds' best interest.

The purpose of this particular forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

For your birds' sake, you need to remove the nestbox, break the breeding cycle and get another cage to separate the two budgies.

If you don't have a separate cage, you aren't experienced enough nor ready to breed ethically and responsibly.
Just because you "want" to breed them does not mean you are ready to nor that you should.

I hope you will take these words to heart and do what is best for your budgies rather than following your own desires.

Hi Sezer!

Baby budgies are adorable for sure, so I understand why you want to breed your budgies!

I also want things sometimes, but I have to consider the consequences. Breeding budgies is not as simple as having two birds and giving them a nestbox. They need a special diet and correct temperament to breed, among many other things.
You must be able to make good decisions that will ensure your budgies are healthy and safe, even if it means putting off breeding until you have a better grasp on the subject.

The advice you've been given above is absolutely correct. It's imperative that you separate your budgies--your male is not "sexually charged", he's aggressive, and could hurt your girl

Since I know you don't want anything bad to happen to your budgies, I hope you will follow this advice!

I look forward to hearing how they're doing soon

For sure the advices is great. Thanks.

But he is Only mad when female won't mate with him. But when she will they doing it! They mate even there isn't nestbox i've tried to remove it twice but the male being more loudly and calms when the nestbox is on ?


When i separete them they're looking for each other.

Should i still remove the nestbox?


They have not breeded before. Their first time. And the female is started to pluck her feathers couple days ago.

(Grammar fail can come)

Yes you should remove the nest box and separate your budgies.
If he is aggressive and showing violent tendencies when trying to forcefully mate, and this is already visible on the beginning of the attempted breeding journey, then for the safety of your pair, it's best that you get a second cage and house your budgies separately (on separate rooms of the house). It's important that your male is given the time to cool off, because he seems to be quite out of control.
From the way your male budgie has been reacting, he really doesn't seem fit for parenthood.
