    If after putting in another food dish the female is still running
    him away from it. Separate the birds and put in different cages!!
    From prior experience I had a dominant female that kept running the
    male off away from the food so I separated the birds into separate
    cages and left space between the two cages so they could still see
    each other for companionship. And the male flourished!! If dont
    take him out and she keeps pestering him he could starve to death
    which I know you would never let that happen!! Be encouraged!!
