So much depends upon whether or not your intentions were to let
this pair of birds breed or not.
Breeding is tough and time consuming. It also comes with
problems and heart ache.
Since they are young, and you do want them to breed, let them
stay together and work this out. My suggestion was to give them
privacy and not interfere to much. They are working on getting
this right. And in some rare cases, there are male/female pairs
that never get it right or ever get along. But that's more the
exception rather than the rule.
I have some Austalian Parakeets and let me tell you they
sometimes get into some serious squabbles when one is not in
breeding mode and the other one is. Doesn't make them
imcompatible, just not always on the same page at the same time.
Keep them together unless you see physical harm done to either of
