So they don't hate each other- will they ever be friends?

So I have two fosters right now Sunny and Pricilla. I'm still working on Cilla being able to handle her and such (She knows step up but for all of her life she was with another bird who liked attention more, so she learned to shy away from humans and let the other bird get the attention, needless to say I'm giving her a few weeks to get settled before asking her to do anything, a relationship built in trust lasts longer) but Sunny is great! Anyone whose been keeping up with my progress should know I hit a rough patchy few weeks ago, but we've come out of it buddies.
SO ANYWAY the point of this is that the two birds seem to have no interest in getting to be friends. They do things at the same time (eat, bathe, ect) they call to each other but in two weeks in the same areas they've completely avoided each other. Cilla was hanging out on top of her cage nd Sunny flew over to it, acted like she had done something wrong and dove back to her cage. Cilla acted similarly running back inside of her cage,
What do I do now?

Does it matter that much if they don't want to be friends? They are as picky about each other as they are about people.

They may just need some more time before they try again. I think it took my 2 conures close to 2 years to make friends.

Re: So they don't hate each other- will they ever be friends?

Not at all, I haven't even really been encouraging it. They each have separate times to me and whatever but I am wondering if there is something I /should/ be doing. I mean they don't seem to dislike each other at all, Sunny even appears to want to be friends (Calls to Cilla, tries to get attention from her in general) and I'm not sure what I should be doing.
If they aren't ever friends that's also fine, but you know I'd like them to get along.

Re: So they don't hate each other- will they ever be friends?

Birds, like people take time to warm up to each other. I recently took in a sweet & friendly lovebird. He was immediately attracted to one of my cockatiels. She wanted nothing to do with him. He would follow (chase) her all over the place. They didn't fight, but, she clearly did not return his interest. He joined our flock about a month ago. They have developed a friendly truce, and play alongside each other, but, he has given up chasing her. Just yesterday, he was minding his own business, and she went over to him, and took a piece of dried red oepper from his beak. He looked at her, and went back to eating another. When she had eaten the stolen piece, she went back to him, and extended her face to his. He gave her another piece. Since then, they have been sitting beside each other, and feeding each other. You have to let them sort it out. As long as they are not fighting, leave them to make their own peace. They will eventually.

Re: So they don't hate each other- will they ever be friends?

My amazon is in love with my Grey and she doesn't give him the time of day, poor guy. He dances and struts for her, and yells, "I love you!" to her over and over. And she just keeps playing with toys and ignoring him. She used to get worried when I would take him out of his cage, but now she ignores that, too. So he wants to be her bf, and she says, "I don't think so." I suspect I may not ever be able to have them out at the same time.

Re: So they don't hate each other- will they ever be friends?

One thing you don't ever try to do is force something that's never gonna happen. IF they don't want to be friends, so be it. I place my birds near each other, but some have jealousy issue and start attacking the other one because of it. So from that time on, they don't get to hang out together. We never push the issue, if they don't want to be, we have no issues in bringing them out separately. IF you want the birds to bond with people, you don't want them bonding to each other anyways. Cause that will enforce the issue of aggressiveness if that does happen.
