Default Hello From A New Owner

Hey everyone,
I'm Riddle, and I am a new cockatiel and Budgie owner. [Although, I admit the budgies are my mothers and one of our cockatiels is my sisters]
I have two cockatiels and three budgies. My Cockatiel is Sweetie , is still quite young when we got her she was just starting to eat seed. My sisters Cockatiel is called Buba and came to us through a family friend who got him from an abusive home and he isn't very social. My mother's Budgies are Indi , Sleepy and Frank
We got Buba first as he wasn't eating or drinking when our family friend got him, we believe it was because of the abuse plus the fact she had a dog who was very interested in him. Then when he got here within the hour he started to eat and drink. [We had recently lost our last pet cat Cha-Cha and have a very quiet household]
We had Buba for maybe three weeks by then my mother felt he needed some companionship and found a place to get him a budgie friend. We went to a breeder nearby and fell in love with Indi who was in a little cage with two other little budgie's, while I fell in love with the sweetest hand reared baby cockatiel but at the time we were looking for a budgie for mum and Buba and so we took Indi home. We got Indi home and put him in his cage my mother said that he looked lonely and we went back not 5 minutes later and got the other two, my mother convinced me to get the baby Cockatiel but I had to wait til the next day as I didn't have the money in my wallet. And now we have a home full of birds. *Laughs* Everyone who knows us are shocked since everyone believed we would get another cat or dog next.
