Are they the same sex or a breeding pair? It's difficult with a breeding pair, I think. I haven't personally had that experience, but I understand it is fairly normal for them to be much more into each other than any humans, and you probably wouldn't want to separate a male/female pair. OTOH, if both are male, and one already lets you handle him, you might try putting them in separate cages (in the same room) and letting them only interact physically for part of the day when they are out of cage. That might make it easier for you to handle the one that's already friendly and may bring the other one around.

You could try some trick training or even simple target training if they will take treats from your hand. Be patient! Even with a tame bird that's been handled quite a bit it can take time.
