Default Male budgie and female violent fighting

Hello! This my first time posting in this forum so if i make a mistake I'm sorry.

My mother's budgies suddenly started fighting very violently to the point that they plucked each other's feathers but with no blood. They used to always fight but not too violently like the last one. Also the most strangest thing is that after the fight they started kissing each other like before the fighting.


They are not both females (i think) cause they had mated before and the female one laid eggs but at the first time they laid 5 eggs but they threw them out and second time they laid 2 eggs but both were infertile. And lastly i have them in a medium sized cage which is suitable for budgies.

If they're fighting violently and plucking each other's feathers out the best thing to do is separate them IMMEDIATELY.

Well sadly i don't have a second cage currently. Also they did pluck their feathers but no blood came out. I'm currently watching them if anything happens and the female just stays in the hole of the box with the male staying right next to her kissing her. I just don't know what is the problem with them.

It does not matter. If they're fighting that violent you need to get a second cage and separate them before one of them gets seriously injured or possibly killed. It's unfair to keep two budgies together knowing all these will do is fight and hurt each other. You need to separate them IMMEDIATELY.

Are they breeding right now? Maybe due to the male's hormones...i seraparated my pairs too since the female is new and even if the male is preening her and fed her a couple of times he starts beak tapping her and this morning i saw him grab the female using his foot...what i noticed is he is trying to mount the female so i immediately separated them and not seeing each other as i also lack experience about breeding and i must proceed with quarantine steps first as i violated it

The female seems very hormonal and willing to breed since she chases the male in order to kiss him. Also i think while i was away from the house they might had mated since the female almost all day is in the box with the male staying right outside next to her.

Didn't you say that they mated before and she threw the eggs out of the nest? There is a possibility she may throw them out of the nest again.

Yes and this happend during spring. Before i recently taken care of them since my mother didn't care about them at all, she had them outside of the house in our yard in a small cage and during spring (in which they laid their eggs) outside in my city it was very very cold and because of that they threw their eggs.

Its all due to hormones then i think...that is exactly what i saw this morning in my pairs so i separated them...now i must convince them both not to mate or having an instinct to breed as i said even earlier i lack of knowledge and experience to make them breed...not to mention i have my hands full due to i have received a pair of canaries too as a gift

I asked my colleague here since he is a bird breeder...not budgies but canaries...and he said that if some newly paired or new mother of canaries there are some point that she throw away the eggs or the chick if its hatched otside the nest for the purpose of mating again...it can apply to budgies since they are also birds and they have the rules of instinct...or maybe the hen is insecured or jealous she throw out the egg...from what i read and to also some forums i checked they say almost all the same
