Budgie people help with taming

I got my granddaughter a hand fed baby budgie. We chose this one because it jumped right onto me and climbed up to my shoulder. Itís super tame and friendly but desperately lonely. I have the budgie halftime and she has it halftime and there is no way we can spend more then a few hours a day with her. Turns out she is a small scruffy sassy friendly girl. I went back to the pet store and bought the last of the hand fed babies. This one is definitely male, larger prettier and better at being alone and playing with toys. Every morning for six weeks before breakfast I put my hand and millet in the cage. He is getting better but my god! Surely you all no how uncomfortable that is. If I move at all, or slowly scratch my nose outside the cage he is still spooked and flies from my hand. All he has to do is be finger trained and then I will move them in together but I donít know if I have the patience to wait six months or a year. Meanwhile Little Lucky has adjusted to living alone but is still alone too much of the time. If I give up on the male and move them in together will it make the little girl named Lucky less tame. They have been together outside the cage or him in his cage and her outside. She feeds him. She is very assertive so I wonder if she will be a good cage mate for him. They sure are different. What if they never live together and just live next to each other in separate cages. If we do that they will still be separated the weeks that Lucky goes to live with my Granddaughter because her dad grumbles carting one cage back and forth already.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
P.s. not that I would ever breed them but I think they are from two different klutches but all handfed together.
