    Seems like they have not bonded yet. Have they been recently
    paired together or have been together for a long time and in
    the past they have shown love and compassion? Well my pairs
    sometimes show a bit of annoyance with their significant
    other half. But they love each other. Sometimes in the
    molting season like (right now) birds need their space even
    from their beloved human companions. My bird Kiki had a
    horrible molt (so he seemed to tell me) he nipped and did
    not want any love though I let him out of the cage he seemed
    to be upset and he would just stair into the mirror toy I
    have for him and wonder “I am still beautiful, right?” But
    he is mostly out of his molt and he is gorgeous and he seems
    to think so too. His attitude has changed and his love for
    me is overwhelming, lol. Also if this pair of birds are not
    in their molt and have showed aggression then they may not
    be meant for eachother, just like humans, birds need to find
    that special one and that male seems to think the female
    following him around is just not for him. But a lot of times
    in budgies that opinion changes as time goes on and they get
    to know eachother. Also many times out of breeding season
    the pairs may not show love for one another but I have not
    seen that with my birds but I have heard it happens. And
    what size cage are your birds in and how many perches and
    are their toys? Birds do find “favorite” spots in their
    cages, maybe your males has choses spots?
