How Do I Stop My Budgies From Fighting?

Last Updated on by Mitch Rezman

Original question from  Quora

My favorite:

“Separate them before one gets killed. Put their cages together to let them see each other.
They may want to live together again in the future”. (Really?)

My response:

Without watching them we don’t know if it’s dominance or jealousy. In multi bird, cages, it’s best to place multiple food and water dishes, also separate sleeping perches.


Then create “safe zones” from enrichment toys or even Romain lettuce clipped to the cage walls so any bird can get privacy when needed.

Yeah like you never wanted to crawl into bed and be left alone.

My guess your cage has few toys or accessories so your birds have nothing to do except pick at each other.

Lastly, introduce lighting over the cage top with a timer.
