    hi...i know this might sound dumb, but are you sure you have
    the sexes on them correct? this male seems to be displaying
    female attitude. it isn't uncommon for females to act just
    this way toward males or other females or even you for that
    matter!!!they tend to be very broody and moody and NO means NO
    and well....maybe later!lolol If you did have them backwards
    that would explain everything! since you have just put them
    together i'd give them just a little more time. sometimes if
    you have an older bird they will have already been paired
    before and it takes time for that bond to the other mate to
    fade. i do agree with kitty about cage size as it is very
    important to have plenty of space for the little darlings to
    get away from one another when they want to. if your male is
    an older bird he could be in his regular molt also. that is
    very stressful on them and tends to make even the males
    cranky. males are generally very good natured and don't act
    aggressivly toward anybody much less another friend but if he
    is having health issues it would explain it. hope this helps
    you. jill
