Unlike my previous thoughts, one (the male) of my birds is simply over jealous or territoral. If she (the other one) tries to play with a toy or even tries to eat out of a food dish, he comes and bullies her away so he can have it. She can't do anything unless he's very distracted by something. She's still eating (since he is easily distracted by food himself and while he's at one food bowl she'll scurry to the other), so it's not as if she's dying, but she doesn't seem as perky or happy with her friend.

I've tried separating them, but as soon as I do, they both end of sad and missing each other.

I'm at a total loss here.

Hang in there. My two went through that and sometime still do. They will work it out but it may take quite a while...I'm talking months.

I know how you feel, I used to have two cats, Kitty(RIP) and Mashka, who I still have, and Kitty used to barge over to Mashka's food bowl, eat as much as she could, and also keep an eye on her own to make sure Mashka doesn't touch hers! I managed to solve this by putting their food and water at different corners. But with your situation... perhaps wait it out and hope they solve it themselves? I cant really suggest anything if it's to that extent, but hang in there, I'm sure they'll settle smile .

I always thought it is just the females who act this way.

I have the same problem, only the bullie is a female.

cage size helps in territorial battles to some degree..bigger is better.
