I got my tiel two weeks ago and sometimes he randomly starts moving his abdomen up and down. It looks like he’s panting and having trouble breathing. But after a few minutes he starts to breathe/act normally again. It starts while he’s already perched so it’s not triggered by any exercise. I make sure there are no fumes in the house which would restrict his respiratory system. His crest is mostly flattened and he raises his feet up interchangeably. Should I take him to the vet? I’m quite worried.

Does his feathers puff up a little when he does that? If so, that's fairly normale. What about the temperature in your house...is it hot? If at ANY time he seems lethargic and (or) down at the bottom of his cage then by all means, get him to a vet ASAP!
