Cockatiel behavior

My 2 cockatiels (male and female) always fight over food even though i have 2 feeding spots in they're cage and also whenever one of them gets close to the other one (usually when the female comes near the male, the male pecks her). What should i do?

Birds will naturally be a bit protective and territorial at times. A little wing flap or peck now and then is quite normal. If he is actively attacking her and pulling feathers, causing injury, that's a different story. If he's that aggressive then they may need a larger cage or even go so far as separate cages.
