I'm sorry you are having problems with your budgies. Given the current situation and the fact that your cockatiel is being bullied by your budgies on a consistent manner, for the overall safety and well being of all birds involved, it's best that Chicken has separate out of cage time away from your budgies.
You can cater to Chicken's social needs by spending daily one-on-one quality time with him.
Has Django always exhibited more of an aggressive behaviour, or did you only notice this change recently?
As to the interactions between your budgies, your Django is exhibiting dominance over Bubba by standing on his back, this is also undesirable behaviour and given the fact she is still so young, you really need to pay close attention to her behaviour and the way she interacts with Bubba, so that you have a better idea on her temperament/personality which may not be compatible to allow her to have a same species mate to share a cage with . If Bubba is visibly bothered by this and in order to avoid this unwanted behaviour from escalating and possibly ending up in vicious fighting between them, it would be a good idea to move your Django to a spare cage and to give her some time for her to cool off.
Later on, you can allow your budgies to have closely supervised out of cage time together and depending on how they go, you can then keep it up or not. If things go well and you wish to have them back together as cagemates, you will have to continue to pay attention to how they interact and if the undesirable behaviour and bullying continues, then having them housed separately on a permanent basis would be the best solution.
Best of luck with everything!
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
