    Budgie aggression?

    I have been letting both of my birds play in the same cage for a few months now as my new budgie is not yet fully tamed yet. So far there hasnít been much aggression and they are always under supervision when together. Sometimes the new budgie would open and close his beak at the old budgie which should indicate aggression but I did not see any signs of fighting and he seems to like his company.
    Here is a video of how they usually play: https://youtu.be/qjhPxn8jkA8

    However, recently I noticed the new budgie occasionally peck at my old budgieís tail and his back when he wants his attention.
    Do you think this is just aggression caused by molting? I am planning to try moving them into a larger cage once the new budgie is fully tamed. Thank you in advance as always

    Awww!! They are soooo beautiful and cute. They are just playing with each other. I do not think it is a aggression. Aggression happens when one dominates over the other, does not allow the other budgie to eat or drink, and often times will peck the other one really hard, and knocking the budgie right off the perch onto the cage floor.

    I also think the cage looks to be plenty big enough. It looks like a great cage.

    Thanks for the update. We will watch for your posts.
