Default Joined 2 cages

I have joined my ferplast 6 and 5 together but I can still separate the naughty budgies if need be.. ive just removed the 2 small doors at the sides bottom and top on each cage. These birds have more room than me now .Decca is in one at the minute and Suki and zuko in the other. Result 😄

You have had issues with both Decca and Suki.
A bigger two-in-one cage will not completely solve the issue, not when the budgies are determined and set in their ways.
The chasing and bullying will likely continue and if you happen to leave them unsupervised, one day you may come home to a severely injured budgie.

I agree with aluz.

I honestly do not believe you should allow Decca and Suki to be together unless you are right next to them giving constant supervision.

I'm on holiday from work for a week and I'm spending all my time with them watching and seeing what goes on.. it's honestly not as bad as I originally thought. Maybe they were finding there place with each other I don't know. It was mostly feeding times and bed times that caused the biggest problems but the last 2 nights it's only been minor. I now have more swings more feeding dishes and I've placed the perches higher. I will not leave them alone like this for now. I'm off work till next Wednesday so I can watch them 24/7. So far so good I have to say but as soon as there is any major problem the doors will be back on and they will be separated.

Watching 24/7 well that is a task for sure! As you know, you are taking a risk, an I hope that if "anything major happens" as you say, that it isn't after you go back to work.

I do agree with you and i know what your saying , I was thinking when I go out anywhere including work I will put the door up and separate and let them only be together when I can watch them...I know it probably makes no sense to you experts but It just makes it easier for me because they're in and out of it all time and I don't have to spend ages directing birds into separate cages... I do have the vision cage spare just in case I ever need to separate all 3 or do vets visits. I'm just getting them used to both cages and if it doesn't work well it doesn't work and then I can easily change it... right now its working , maybe tomorrow it won't but at least it will be easy to separate and the cages will be right next to each other.

Emma,

I understand that you want your budgies to get along. A harmonious flock is definitely fun to watch and be a part of.

However, this is not possible in many cases. Budgies, like people, don't get on with everyone, and their needs must be respected.

In your case, you really shouldn't put them back together. Although I admire your efforts in "watching them 24/7", this is not possible as you will have to sleep and leave the room on occasion, as well as be engrossed in other activities even in the room.

It only takes a few seconds for an argument to turn fatal.

If you continue to risk the safety and well-being of your little ones in an attempt to help them "work things out", it is very likely it will end poorly.

Perhaps in the future they will be able to interact all together outside the cage during playtime, but they will never be able to be housed all together and shouldn't.

Also, I understand your plan about the cages. In the future, once they have had time to settle into their new routines, they may be able to interact under supervision, such as play in each other's cages while you're there like you are doing now. However, it's important to give them a break for a little bit so that they can regain confidence in their surroundings.

Housing two birds together and having one in the other cage is, in my opinion, the best option right now.

I know you want the best for your birds

Best wishes!

If it's such an effort separating them during out of cage time I would simply be letting out one cage at a time.
It's not that hard. I've had four cages with two pairs in each and managed it (none of my birds are tame either).

You are going to continue to do as you wish with your birds it seems, no matter what advise you receive. Sadly, it's your budgies who will pay for it if you're wrong.
