Default Mean behaviour?

Hi guys

Check my thread in 'new budgie arrivals' to have a better idea of who I'm talking about.

Indy, a sky blue budgie, has nasty behaviour towards Nooka, the violet cobalt grey wing.

They both schedule sleep and activity time, but once it's eat/activity time, Indy becomes extremely hyper (which I view as normal), but even though there is enough space, he NEEDS to be in the spot where Nooka is, and if Nooka doesn't get out of the way because he's a bit slow and young, Indy becomes frustrated and is determined to push him off the perch, or get him away, wherever he is.
I wonder, what could be the reason towards this mean behaviour? Nooka is very gentle and nice, but Indy acts very frustrated and 'mean'? Is there a temporary reason, and what could that be, or is it his personality?

I really want to know a solution, since I don't want to worry about him hurting Nooka. So if this goes on without him cooling down, I might have to return him to the breeder and get a younger baby that will be more gentle towards Nooka.

Some other info that might influence your answers:
- There are enough perches and they oftenly sit on their own, they don't necessarily want to be on the other one more, both are on the same height and quite close to the top.
- There are 3 eating places and 2 drinking places and some nice bamboo branches that they like, all get used once in a while.
- Nooka started flying for the first time today and is a little bit out of balance when sitting, because he's younger than Indy. Indy seems to find his slowness frustrating, but I'm not sure about the motive.
- Both are eating and drinking well.

Never mind everyone!

I've concluded he's just very very stressed about the past few days, I'll leave them a bit more alone, and put some calming music up, he already seems to act much better, he's just startled very easily. I hope he adjusts soon.

Sometimes budgies are the type that are quite bossy and want to be in charge. Are your budgies girls or boys? Keep an eye on the situation as your new baby could become stressed from constant bullying.

They are both boys.
I had already concluded it isn't bullying, he only does it once he feels a bit scared and he just doesn't know how to handle the situation and he takes it out on everything that is mildly in the way. He's completely normal and nice once he calmed down again, so I think he just needs much more time than Nooka to adjust to their new situation.
