All birds react differently when it comes to water.
Your budgies are probably happy with just the water that is
splashed on them from the other birds rather than getting
into the bath itself.
What I do find with my birds is that bathing sets off a chain
reaction amongst the flock. When one or two start to bathe
either in a bath bowl or water cup, many more seem to want to
join in even though they are in separate cages.
I have some that will not bathe to save their souls and those
birds I put into smaller cages/carriers and shower them
All my birds get regular baths including the breeders.
