To start my pair of budgies had 4 babys and a week and a half after they were born the male and female started to fight about letting each other feed the babys. He wouldnt let the female in the nesting box and if she did get in he wouldnt let her out he would stand on the perch and they would fight threw the hole for the nesting box. I thought that they would work out who would take care of the baby's but they didnt it just got worse. Unfortunately I had to remove the male from the cage this morning. The female seems to be doing alright with taking care of them by herself.

I feel bad for him because he is chirping and climbing all over the cage looking for a way out to get back to the other cage. My pair has been together for little over two year since they were young I think he is distressed because now he is not eating. I dont know what I should do. Please help

What you should do is not feel sorry for him and put him back. What you should do is take his cage and put him far far away so he cant hear his partner or call out to each other. Then he can concentrate on eating for himself and not fretting.
