Hi. I adopted two female cockatiels 3 weeks ago. One I was told was about 2 years old but she wasn't sure because she isn't the original owner. The feathers on the back of her head are very scruffy and seems to sleep a lot.
She eats and drinks normally, sleeps on one foot a lot. Plays in short bursts but seems to tire quick and takes naps.
I can't afford to take her to the vet at the moment because we just had a big vet bill from a cat we rescued off the side of the road.
Should I be concerned or is it just that she is still settling into her new environment?

Sleeping on one foot usual means the bird is relaxing. I won't worry too much. I would just keep an eye on this one.
