Is this normal for two new budgies?

Hello, about a week ago I got two budgies, both a few months old. They both appear to be male, although since their not really that old I wouldn't be surprised if it changed. The two will sit on a swing before they go to bed, and the blue one, Skyes, will play with the bells for a little. Whenever he does, the other will peck at him. They don't fight over food or anything, but our green budgie Smudge will sometimes start pecking at Skyes. Is this normal, since they are new cage mates.

No, this is not normal, and I suggest you put them into separate cages. If your cage is too small, this can be part of the reason for fighting. Each bird needs its own food and water bowl, so get another cage for one of them.

Thanks for writing,
