"Hi I'm Christi, I live in South Africa and have bought a golden capped conure 3 days ago, I’ve named him Brody. He still looks pretty young, not all his feathers have fully developed (about almost a year?) but he's more than capable at flying. I've read that this kind of bird is very active and likes to move around a lot. When Brody is excited he walks from one side to the other on one of his sticks and also climbs around on the bars. But because I'm at work almost the whole day I can't really keep a good eye on him. But to me he seems a bit inactive. When I arrive at home he is mostly still and doesn't move around much. I try to spend as much time with him as possible when I get home. He eats fruits from my hand and doesn’t really mind me sticking my hand in the cage, but he doesn’t want me to try and do a step-up yet. Which is understandable since I’ve only had him for a few days. He seems curious enough and likes to try new foods. He is mostly quiet and makes crackling noises with his beak like he is cracking open a sunflower seed, but he doesn’t have one in his mouth. He also murmurs to himself softly and moves slowly when he does. Is this behaviour uncommon? Should I be worried that he is sick?"
