Maybe these two birds are different ages, and by feathers not growing back, I take it that your budgies flight feathers were clipped... Are they living in a cage or in an aviary, and do you want them to be pets, or breeders (in the future, when they are older)?????

If you want your budgies to be pets, its best to keep them clipped so that they do not fly out an open window or door. On the note of the feathers not growing back, not all birds molt at the same time, and these two birds may have been born at different times. A molt is usually set by food (are they on a healthy diet with lots of fruits, veggies, grains..... do they get plenty of food???), and weather (are they living indoors, or outdoors??? it's a thing with the seasons...).
