Question Newbie Owner Here! Meet Taco

Hi all,

I am a brand new budgie owner and animal lover in general. I did a lot of research and reading, and brought home my new budgie 4 days ago. I think I'm doing all the right things to help him adjust. He seems to be eating, and will stretch out and preen a bit...but he's so quiet! And he rarely moves or shows interest in playing with any of the toys in his cage yet.
I know I need to be patient, I guess I'm just looking for words of encouragement and any advice.
He did come from a pet store, and was very active there with the other birds - hopping around a lot and chirping loudly. We've only heard him let out a handful of chirps in the last four days and I'm worried. I want him to be happy here and feel free to play and be as active as he's used to.
I guess I'm just afraid he'll forever be silent and sitting in one spot, and not a very happy budgie.
Help me out
