Blue and Yellow are very pretty birds!
Are you going to keep their names as is or do you plan to change them?
You don't necessarily have to separate them to begin taming and bonding with them initially. Sometimes if one budgie is more brave than the other, as the braver one begins making up to you the more timid one will follow suit.
Start just like you would with any new budgie.
To build your birdsí trust, sit by their cage and read, talk or sing quietly to them for a period of at least 10-15 minutes, 3 or 4 times day. After about a week, rest your hand on the outside of the cage when you talk to them so they will learn that your hand is safe and will not hurt them.
After a week of resting your hand on the outside of the cage, rest your hand inside the cage when you talk.
Donít make sudden moves, donít try to touch them.
Let their get used to the idea that the hand is now in their safe place and not harming them.
After 2 weeks, begin moving your hand slowly toward your bird. If they become agitated, stop moving your hand and just hold very still until they calm down. When they are comfortable with your hand near them, you can offer them a bit of millet or a few seeds.
Always work at your birdsí pace.
Move slowly and talk reassuringly and calmly to their whenever you interact with them.
Best wishes and enjoy the journey.
