Sorry, I know you asked me to have a look but I really don't know. The only time my cockatiels have crouched like this was when I first got them and they were scared, they swayed and hissed whilst down close to the ground, but this doesn't seem the same. Googling said it might be a sign of illness :( but again, I really don't know. Hopefully someone else can help you out soon. Is he acting ok now?

Do you have any flat perches? He might like one to rest on like he is doing if he is tired.
He may just like to support himself like that or has a harder time perching with his that leg or maybe that leg is not as strong as his other. Does he do that when he is perching on his other leg too?

He perches normally he hasn't done it today and I have a hamster I'm giving away because I don't have time for her anymore and she's keeping Rocko awake at night could Rocko just be very tired that he needs to lie down and I never knew u could get flat perches

Yeah the flat perches range from pieces of square wood to cajeput flat perches and flagstone. Flagstone is the most expensive because half it's price is shipping, but you'll have it forever. http://www.parrot-and-conure-world.com/handicapped-bird-perch.html

I think he just perches like that. He has a unique style. ^^

Hoping the hamster goes to a good home :)

Thanks I hope she goes to a good home as well to be honest I'm just not a hamster person I used to own one as a kid and I thought I would want another but I think I like parrots too much they are just the best pets I've ever had I even had dogs and I prefer parrots more even my mam has a parrot an African grey she loves my mam. I've never seen platform perches in my pet store but I'm going to a different pet store that sells the aviator harness so I'll have a look while I'm there
