Default English Budgie Girl

So I got the chance to interact with this little girl. We spent a few hours together. She is supposed to be weaned plus 3-4wks. So I assumed about 3mths old, is that right? She was parent raised so I wasn't sure what she'd be like when I tried to interact with her.

Well I had her step onto a perch to get out of the cage. We then practiced step up and I gave her millet as a reward. She is SOOOO calm.....I wasn't expecting her to be so tame for being untame lol. She even let me pet her head and seemed to like it. I am just so surprised considering she was parent raised and never handled.

Anyway, I haven't tried assessing the male yet. I think he is about 8mths old, also parent raised and not handled. I wonder if I have had such luck with the female cuz she's young? I am still not sure if I should keep them both as a pair or just the female and let my dad take back the male. I think she can tame up fast and that her personality could work with Cozette's.
