problem with old tiel getting along with new tiel

Hi,

Last Sunday, I got a new 8 wk. old***atiel as a
companion for my current 1.5yr. old male***atiel.

The problem I'm having is that since the two were introduced to
eachother, (1) my old tiel isn't as friendly anymore.  He would
run away when I want to pick him up & won't allow me to pet
him as much as before & (2) he doesn't seem to be getting along
with the baby tiel either.  He always runs in the direction
opposite to where ever she is or is headed.  

Would these two, especially the male, ever get along with the other,
& will he ever go back to being his old self?
