We have 3 budgies; Tango
We used to just have Tango & Steve
but unfortunately Steve passed away 3 months ago.
Tango was starting to get quieter so we decided to get new birds. The breeder seemed to know what he was talking about but he told us to just add the new budgies straight to Tango's cage.
We weren't so sure since Tango can be a little aggressive, he was to Steve, but nothing that seemed too serious, so we waited 2-3 weeks before putting them all in together after having their cages next to each other (we have read the Introducing new budgies guide here since, but with what the breeder said we thought we were ok).
Any way, there was quite a lot of fighting like chasing each other off perches and food constantly even though we put enough in for all of them. It seemed a bit more than normal bickering so we've separated them but now Jay and Grant are still fighting a little, when they weren't before.
We just want to know if Tango will ever be able to be introduced to the new budgies and if what they were doing was serious fighting or does it just look worse than it is?
Sorry for the essay! Thanks for reading!
