Old budgie meets new budgie and becomes aggressive
Sorry for emailing again on this but I’ve been able to hand feed my new 8 week old and my year and half year old budgies mainly kail and a bit of millit. My old budgie use to be very scared of new things including food and I’d have to force him to come out once in awhile but now after getting a new budgie he walks around and trys new things and when he chooses to come out of the cage he allows me to pick him up and hand feed him whilst in the cage. I monitor them nearly all the time just in case but there is no aggression towards the new bird its just head bobs, following and cleaning the new bird. So if anything I feel the new bird has had a good effect on my old budgie. My new budgie is completely safe, im guessing the aggression from my old budgie towards me was a new change of cage and other things and was matter of time to get use to things, both birds let me hand feed them and has recently been able to trust my hands a bit better then before as every now and then they sit on my finger whilst I feed them but not much. Does this still mean I should separate them into own cages when they are both safe but just need a little more time to tame? Course im afraid this’ll freak my old budgie and bring aggression forward alot more.
