I was a bit concerned with that myself when you said pair. And yeah the whole bonding thing with the other bird is kinda true. Cockatiels are touchy, it might take a while to get them friendly

Quiet? Ahahah welcome to the wonderful world of birds! :)

They may quiet down a bit eventually, I'm guessing their stressed from being in a new place.

As what was stated before, the birds are not used to people. They will be loud because that's what birds do. Especially since you got two!! They are talking to each other, maybe complaining how loud the humans are!! Nothing you can do except adapt to the noise. YOU wanted the bird!!!!

I'm actually glad you got 2. I'm not a bird person but I have the anthropomorphic feeling that animals kept alone are worse off and lonely. And I KNOW birds are social. Just feel glad you have the birds, the taming will come with time. Jeez, you got them now, you have like 20 years to tame them!

Most people like bunnies too. These people are the ones who buy bunnies from a store or backyard breeder and within the first year give the bunny up for adoption or give it away to strangers because of the hormones that kick in and make them terrible pets. Bunnies DO NOT like to be handled, I had my bunny for 5 years now and it's payday when she jumps in my laps on her own. All I'm saying is, get used to not having cuddly pets. Birds seem pretty independent and they JUST came to a new environment. Give them time!
You're 13? Yea, you have plenty of time.

I don't think laki was getting mad at you :p
If they don't want to be touched, the best thing you can do is sit near the cage as much as possible, talk to them calmly so they get used to your voice.
Don't force them to do anything, this could just scare them more.
