Default what is up with these hens?

Hi all! I recently adopted two female budgies who I was told are about 4 months old each. Being new to hens after having all bachelor budgies, I'm not too familiar with hen behavior. Peanut and JellyBean have both started doing the same thing lately, getting in the small food dishes and rolling around in the food. doing somersaults with their feet sticking in the air Are they just goofy or is there reasoning behind this? Thanks all!

I've only had one seed dish bird, and that was a male.
He quit doing it when he matured though. Sound's like their just having fun...

I had 2 budgie females who used to hang on the top corners and do somersaults as well .
It might be because they're bored , but most likely its just their way of playing

I'll try to catch them in the act. They're camera shy.
