Default Best cage arrangement to discourage problems?

I've got a breeding issue I've been discussing in the other forum. I currently have 4 budgie siblings in a cage with their father. The hen and current clutch are in another. The hen is human imprinted and doesn't get along really well with other birds. She'll put up with certain offspring of her own just fine and did actually bond to the male, but she bit off part of his toe so I moved him out.

So, if I manage daylight hours and there is no nestbox present, is it ok for a mix of male and female siblings in the same cage? The bond of clutchmates makes for really hilarious behavior. I hate to break them up. However, I'm leaning toward trying a cage of females and a cage of males.

If I have a cage of hens and there are no males, will they still fight with each other when they get broody? Do I just need to have the human imprinted hen by herself? What has worked for you?

For your situation, it would really be best to house the siblings by gender.
In case you don't know, temperament is inheritable so the aggressiveness from one of the parents can be passed onto the chicks.
The chronic egg laying issue can also be passed to the female offspring and this is another characteristic that it's important to pay close attention to.
When there is consistent bullying and chasing around, then moving the aggressive budgie into a separate cage would be the best option in order to prevent vicious attacks from happening.
