Default as my name hences, new budgie owner

hello friends
as of today i bought 2 new parakeets for myself, they're both babies so i dont know gender yet but anyone got any tips for me? ive been a cockatiel owner so im not totally new but in case budgies have some different moods i gotta worry about can anyone hit me up? my budgies were in the cage while i let my tiel fly free and she kept trying to bite the budgies through the bars so i kept stopping her so i guess i gotta wait for them to get used to each other first. do i gotta do same steps as i did with my tiel, wait like a week for my budgies to get used to the new home then let them out? well first they gotta be able to handfeed from me and step onto my finger in the cage then i will

sorry if i didnt make sense, in a hurry

You need to quarantine your budgies in a completely separate room from your cockatiel for 45 days to ensure they don't get each other sick. Please read all the 'stickies', threads attached to the top of each section, about getting budgies and training them and such.
Also be aware that your cockatiel might get jealous and not like the budgies. If the point was to get a friend for your cockatiel getting two budgies probably isn't going to help - they will probably want more to do with each other and it's going to be a long slow road to bonding. I'm not saying it can't be done, just that it's going to be difficult.

Do you have pics and what are their names? If you post pics we can tell you the sex of the birds as well. Also feel free to include pics of your cockatiel! We like all birds here at talkbudgies.

Moira is correct.

Quarantine is done to ensure that your new birds aren't hiding an illness that can spread to your tiel.
Budgies and tiels are very different in terms of personality and they make not like interacting. Tiels are more laid back and friendly and budgies tend to be very active and less social with humans. especially as you have two, you may find taming them takes some time.

If you post a picture, someone will be able to assist you with the gender.

It would be best for you to start reading through some of the stickies on the forum to educate yourself. There is a lot of information and you should familiarise yourself with it.
There are going to be a lot of subtle differences between tiels and keets, but it's up to you to research it.

You also need to learn the appropriate way to introduce your birds.
Allowing two brand new birds into your home to be introduced to your tiel isn't a very safe and reassuring way to begin for them.

i wont be able to Quarantine them because my sister wont listen and just keeps moving them to her and bothering them cause she has no idea how to take care of birds
but i am trying to keep them in a different room than my tiel most of the time

and for training, could i do the same training i did with my tiel? like use a word command and hand motion command then treat with a millet once they succeed and praise them?
