So ive gotten 2 budgies like 3-4 months ago. Zeus And Horizon ! Since I've gotten them I've seen them fight like CRAZY ! I don't know why though they just don't stop. In absolutely rare times like only 2-3 times they've Fed each other but then 5-6 seconds later they start fighting again. ! I have a good sized cage like large! They have 2 food bowls, 1 water bowl cause they don't drink much. And many toys and perches. Horizon the female just keeps Biting at Zeus ... More often He doesn't fight back though. He's always trying to feed or preen her, shes more of a fighting bully type. Will they ever make up and for how long will this happen for? I can't afford to just buy them different cages with supplies in both cages and I have no permission from my parents to do so. One time horizon bit Zeus he had a scar on top of his head, But he had his first moult so It disappeared afterwards. But I cant see them fighting again and again. They're Both 6 months old. Any Solutions? Please Help!

I think your only solution is to house them separately....for their safety I think it's a must. Do you let them out of the cage? If so you could allow them playtime in neutral territory once they have their own cages. I've gotten very good deals on cages online through Petco and Amazon.
That's actually another thing - letting them out of the cage! I'm still taming them and I dont know if they'll get scared afterwards and them ill have a huge setback on taming them . Also, My mom wouldn't allow me getting another cage, Because we have almost no other spot to place them in and we have kids in the house too. I picked the spot safest for my budgies and I have no other place.
You asked for advice and the best advice you are going to receive on the forum is to separate the two budgies immediately.
Giving reasons why you "can't" do so will not negate the fact that the best thing for the budgies' health and well-being is to house them separately.
Anytime blood has been drawn by a bird, that bird needs to be caged separately.
I'm surprised the male has survived 3-4 months.
If you don't take action the poor thing may not be so fortunate the next time.
Owning pets means you must take the responsibility for their health and well being.
Talk to your parents regarding the necessity of separating the budgies.
Ask your parents to advance you the funds for a second cage and help you find a place to put it.
Offer to do extra chores to pay them back.
Save any money you earn and or get as a gift and start an emergency fund so you will have it in case either budgie ever needs to be seen by an Avian Vet.
It's up to you to do what is in the best interest of your budgies.
If you absolute can not separate them and give them the care they need,
then I would suggest rehoming one of them to a place where it will receive the proper care, love and attention it deserves.
I wish you the best of luck in your discussion with your parents.

My Friend has 4 Lovebirds, and Ive thought and talked to her about keeping Zeus for a day, just to buy the cage and supplies and getting everything set up so that the next day I can put Zeus in there and have them separated She said sure she has had many birds in the past and she has a couple of cages but theyre too small, so I m buying one myself . I read online as well that if you put 2 separate cages together (Side by side) they might talk to each other through their cages and become friendly towards one another is that true
