Hey! I'm totally new to these forums, but I've just a couple hours ago gotten a new cockatiel. While viewing them at the breeders, their feathers wear flat, they weren't bobbing when they breathed, and they were fairly active. Now that they're at home they're puffed up and bobbing when breathing, I think it's just the stress of being at a new home, but I really do just want to confirm with someone who may be more experienced with cockatiels than me. They're still a baby, and chirping away, climbing around a little bit too, but they're always very puffed up and bob when they breathe. Could this just be the stress off coming to a new home? Since they weren't acting like this at the breeders, and I can't imagine they would get ill within minutes of arriving at their new home. Poop is normal too, and they're eating and drinking.

I'd appreciate any help, thanks!
