    You are doing all you can do good buddy. Keep monitoring the situation and soon the right pairing will happen. It is a natural course of events for the male to drive the female to nest. Unfortunately where the females are so young you are wise to keep a handle on things to avoid injury. Time will eventually sort thing out.
