aggressiveness in female budgie
by fiona o'reilly
hi, i have 2 female budgies. we have them over 2 years, we got them from a neighbour of my aunt's, she was gettin a cat and was gettin rid of the budgies. we took them in. we have a green budgie and a white albino budgie. the white albino is really a pet, she causes no trouble, not even to the green budgie, shes like a lady budgie, just sits in the cage all day and plays with her toys and eats etc.
but the green budgie wont leave her alone, she wont let her fown for food, she wont let her on the inside of the cage, she wont let her play with any of the toys etc, the green budgie thinks she rules the roost, also theres a gap on the white budgie's wing where theres no feathers and the green one keeps pecking at her wing and making it bleed, once it heals up the green one pecks at it again and keeps pecking and annoying her, we think theyre 2 females cuz i got a booka nd it says if they have beige or brown nostrils/nose theyre females, the 2 budgies have brown noses or nostrils.
when we got them off the lady we were told nothing about them, we think they were at least 2 years when we got them, so they must be over 4 now. can u explain why the green one is acting up like this, is it lack of male company?? thanks from fiona.
