My male lorrikeet is dominating over food
So i am in the process of trying the same thing, I had a female and then I got a male from a person. They have bonded to some extent. They have started cuddling each other on heads and have started sitting together.
The problem arises when i give food. The male one has a tendency to gobble up everything and he jumps on one and other bowl, i started off giving in two separate bowls and that results in my feamle not getting food and then she gets scared and it gets followed by loud screeches and flapping by both of the birds. After that, they gets separated out and my female sits in the corner if i take her out of the cage and tries to put her back she gets reluctant to go in.
How to tackle this behaviour? I want them to bond but I am afraid this will result in injury or the female getting scared.
P.s. the male is older in age and bigger in size.
