A pair of my budgies laid eggs and now they have three kids. and now they are like 23 days (not sure). And I have a budgie(name: tweety) and he is bonded with another budgie (not the parents I mentioned). One day he did something strange. He fed the budgie chicks even though he is not a parent. And the parents noticed it and got jealous I guess and attacked tweety in the head. and he hurt his feet. After like 2 hours tweety also attacked back. please tell me what to do??

The purpose of this forum is to promote BEST PRACTICES for the health and well-being of budgies.

You should never colony breed.
The parents and the nest box should have been in an individual breeding cage only IF you had done extensive research prior to allowing the budgies to breed.

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.
This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

How long have you owned budgies?

How many budgies total do you have?
What gender are they?
Are they related?
How old are they?
How large is the cage you have them in?
What are you feeding them?
Do you have an Avian Veterinarian for them?
What do you plan to do with the offspring from this clutch?

At this time, you need to move Tweety into a separate cage by himself. How badly is he injured?

You also need to move the female into a separate cage by herself as she may become aggressive toward the chicks or start another clutch.
Make sure there is NOTHING that can be used as a nest box in the cage.

The father and the three chicks only should be in a cage together at this point.
The father will finish raising the chicks until they are fully fledged.

If you have other budgies, you need to remove them from the birds listed above.

Cage sizes.

Essentials to a Great Cage

None of your budgies should be allowed to breed.
Once the chicks have are fledged, the female budgies should be kept on one cage and the male budgies in another.
Never put anything into any of the cages that can be used as a nesting site.
