My cockatiel was hatched on January 12 and he is 2 month old now but his feathers still look like a 1 month old cockatiel or even younger :(( My other 1 month cockatiel looks older than him and has so much feather now. We don't know what to do :((

Other than that bald spot behind his head, He looks fine to me. That bald patch MAY indicate that one of the parents is a Lutino which is a common trait. Have you given him a warm spray bath with a garden spray bottle? This will encourage preening and will actually help his feathers. He is still pretty young so wait until his first molt then seen how the feathers look. Even that bald patch may fill in.
He also can't digest seeds well. Whenever he tries to eat, he will poop it as it is. His poop has seeds in it. Is that normal? Is there something we can do about it?
