Young “green” males do try and set up their own bowers and decorate them. If there is a dominant male around they usually get severely hassled but they keep on trying. Incidentally for those who didn’t know, it takes 7 years for an all blue male to acquire his plumage, hence the apparent dominance of “female” birds. There are ways to pick young “green” males from females which I won’t go into here.
