Bullying

Okay, so, I have 3 parrots in a 75 gallon. All 3 get along alright, though one of them seems to be the lowest in the pecking order. But just recently, the bullying has gotten worse. Now, both of the other fish are attacking the third fish, and I'm concerned. I -think- it's because they're all kind of in the breeding mood, the two bullies have been digging up the sand in the tank as though they're trying to find a place to lay eggs, and I'm pretty sure their egg tubes are out. I'm not entirely certain of the sex on all the parrots. I tried to sex them as best I could without actually taking them out of the tank and flipping them over and really looking, and I thought they were all female? Is this just a passing phase, or should I consider finding the other parrot a new home? I just don't want anybody to get severely injured.
