Adult Budgeriar attacking babies
I have a 6ft x 2ft x 3ft cage with about 40 budgeriars. They have 10 aviaries 3 of which not occupied. Whenever a Budgieriar jumps out of his aviary a particular adult Budgeriar would attack him. This is the 7th baby i found bitten, his head covered in blood. I managed to save five of them. One of them was just 4 weeks old and i found him dead. The other had just jumped out of his aviary but it was so severly beaten that it died during the night :(.
I have also noticed that even if an adult budgeriar is weak he is being attacked.
I just ordered a bigger cage with more avaries because I thought that that might be the cause.
What do you think?
