Hi, I just purchased two budgies six days ago. There were three in the cage at pet shop. I chose the two that were happily cuddled up together. Not sure of the sex they both have a beige/pink cere. The larger one, Bobbie, is the dominant one. Gets to eat first while pushing the other away from the food. The other does eventually get to eat. I have two food dishes and two water dishes but the smaller one, Bella, seems to want to wait to eat out of same dish as Bobbie 🙄
This morning I noticed Bobbie pecking at Bella's feet and gently biting her tail. Bella, at this point doesn't seem to be bothered by that. I'm just worried it might escalate. Bobbie also will sit by Bella on the perch and lean against Bella hard enough to move her along the perch til she flies to another perch. Bobbie then follows and repeats. I'm worried that Bobbie might hurt Bella. Any suggestions???
