This doesn't sound far fetched at all, as my very first thought
was the exact same thing.
Please be careful of this situation...You may get a knock at
your door by someone accusing you of stealing the birds. The
other thing is (and it is a major one) is that you shouldn't
take in a bird (especially a parrot of any kind) unless you had
already decided (before this "offer" was made) that you do
indeed want to share your home with a parrot.
If you don't take the birds, then there are parrot rescues that
you can call, but please be sure that they are reputable...I'd
try PEAC (they are out of San Diego, CA). If they can't take
them, I am sure they'd be able to point you towards someone who
could, or at least give you some good advice.
Good luck, and please let us know the outcome!
