    is this a pic of the stand offish budgie? if so, there is
    part of the problem as this bird is a female NOT a male.
    females tend to be broody and moody a good deal of the time.
    she might be nervous when left alone as most keets are when
    accustom to being kept with others regularly. as far as your
    other two they have brown cere's as well? if so
    they also are female. it isn't uncommon for two birds (same
    sex if none of the oppisite sex are available) to pair up.
    the third then does get left out. if you were to purchase a
    male for this female...she would likely hack at him. this to
    is normal. but she would likely make friends with him
    eventually.....beware as keets grow on you! i started just
    the way you are right now and now i have 26 adult keets!!!
    lolololololol hope this helps, jill
