How long have you had her for? I would personally leave her be for a while because she seems quite stressed out. Once you've given her some peace and quiet I would start approaching her by sitting by the cage for a good hour a day or so so she can see you better and get used to you being near by. When you get the chance, hold your male while she is watching. If she sees another bird being comfortable with you then she will know you aren't a threat. If he trusts you then so can she. Feed her smaller, measured meals at set times during the day and don't offer treats unless you begin training her. To start with, just put the odd desirable food item in her bowl and let her go over to it and eat it. Once she associates you with treats she may take something from you through the bars if it is something she really likes. Mine particularly enjoy a grape, quartered. I'll leave it there as that's only the beginning but if you want further and more in-depth advice then please feel free to message me
