Thank you so much for this!Both the OP's budgies are male, I personally confirmed their gender
This is common between budgies of any gender but as you said it can lead to one budgie being very tired of the constant attention and the other budgie being increasingly frustrated. During these hormonal periods, it would probably be better to let Momo and Yuki out separately to ensure they can have out of cage time that's tailored for their needs. That way Momo can catch a break and during Yuki's time out, you can do some recall training or play with his toys with him or simply encourage him to fly around so that he tires out and expends some of his energy.
It doesn't seem like he's trying to hurt Momo purposefully, he is overexcited and overstimulated and needing to find a method to expend his hormonal urges as well. Having him tuckered out from a lot of playtime outside the cage is one strategy, and switching the cage around can sometimes help throw males off their hormonal patterns as well. Other than that, you'll need to monitor them carefully to ensure that within the cage Momo still has some space or you may have to house them separately for the time being until Yuki calms down.
Please let us know how things go!
Ah sorry about that LOL~ Glad it still got through though!!Thank you so much for this!
I think the names got reversed here, as Momo is the one mounting Yuki but I still understand what you mean here.
