I have two budgies, as far as I know, the older one is a girl named Smudge and the younger one is a boy named Breeze. They are both under 3 years old. My budgies have had several incidents in the last six months. I have never actually witnessed it, but I have heard the screams and the flapping, when the boy attacks the girl. A couple of months ago, Smudge, ended up with a big bloody spot on her chest. She wouldn't stop picking at it and we thought she was going to die. It did heal though and since the two would call each other from across the room, we thought they might just need more room. So we got a bigger cage and kept them together during the day without a problem. Yesterday, Breeze attacked Smudge again. My mom saw it happen and immediately took Smudge out. She shook violently for a while with one of her wings held out. She was picking at the wing a little, but she seems fine now. Anyway, my mom thinks that I should get rid of Breeze. He is a little pain because he has always refused to be held and flies away from us whenever he can. I feel bad though because even though there is obviously a problem between the two, Smudge always dances for Breeze when they are together. I don't want to depress Smudge if I get rid of Breeze. Now Smudge is NOT a normal budgie. She is very people oriented and has a love relationship with her bell and mirrors, so maybe Breeze's disappearance wouldn't faze her. If anyone has any advice it would be appreciated.
