Transmit Failing

I have three devices set up in XCTU, COORD, END1 and END2. They are all on the same network. In XCTU when I discover nodes in the same network they all show up in each others radio networks.

My code however will only send to one of them. Can anyone tell me why? Also I set up END1, created a profile. Loaded that profile onto END2 and changed the name to ensure they would all be on the same network.

import xbee
from machine import ADC
import time

print(" +
+")
print(" | XBee MicroPython Network Discovery Sample |")
print(" +
+\n")

ADC_PIN_ID = "D3"
adc_pin = ADC(ADC_PIN_ID)

print("Discovering network devices...\n")

network_devices = list(xbee.discover())
print("Found {0} devices.".format(len(network_devices)))

while True:
adc_value = adc_pin.read()
print("- ADC value:", adc_value)
for device in network_devices:
addr16 = device
addr64 = device

value_sent = False
try:
# Some protocols do not have 16-bit address. In those cases, use the 64-bit one.
xbee.transmit(addr16 if addr16 else addr64, str(adc_value))
value_sent = True
except Exception as e:
value_sent = False

if value_sent:
print("Sent data to: " + device)
print(device)
else:
print("Data not sent to: " + device)
print(device)
time.sleep(5)
