My sun conure is grinding up all his food into a powder

My sun conure is grinding up all his dry food into a powder. I suspect he is in mating mode, but this has been going on for months. We have a quaker parrot that we think is a female. Should I separate them? I am not certain, but I think my sun conure is a male. They seem to be good company for one another, so I hate to move them away from each other.

Bird grinding pellets to powder

Our birds do this too. Some birds just leave more pellets crumbs than others as best I can tell.
