how small (give deminsions) is the cage he is in? If it is big enough for him to open his wings out then he will be OK for his period of adjustment.

He can open his wings, and he just went for food himself just now, only problem thing is he does it in a crazy way. He'll grab onto the top of the cage and walk to his food upside down, then, he doesn't know how to climb the side walls, so he'll just flip out and fly to the bottom. Then he manages to walk to the food, he has no trouble flying back to the top perch when he's done

Paris just climbs sideways to her food, I'm worried if I shift him over he might not know how to get to his food, and that cage is a lot higher

He looks healthy when he's going for food, but any other time he just sits there with his head down looking depressed..

He we all have our own styles. Just as long as he is eating, don't worry.

So he's cleaned himself, still some on his beak, why is he sitting in his cage depressed? He's not even moving his wings or anything, just sitting there motionless

I told you before, he is not depressed. He is adjusting to his new environment. He probably is ready for bed.

I have noticed that the thread is getting long. G M, I don't think there is something wrong with your bird. He is just a little nervous about his new home-normal. Next time if you get another keet, make sure you have a apropriate cage, even if it is temporary.

He's figured out how to get to his food, and he's sitting with his head up. He's still sitting there motionless though, no preening even. He still has poop getting stuck, why is this? He's eating the same food and drinking the same water as Paris, and she's fine

Edit:Just now he went to eat, and when he was finished and flew back, there were bits of feathers all over the food container. I've never seen this with Paris, a lot of you are saying he's fine and just tired, is he sick or not?

It sounds like he is moulting. This is not anything to worry about. If you look closly at his head, you will see little pin feathers, they look like he just needs to lay them down. This is a sure sign that his is moulting.

When you say bits of feathers all over, I am assuming they are down feathers. That would be just the little soft puffy feathers. That is quite normal with a moult.

Kenny, I am glad your new guy is getting to his food! That is progress. Do as everyone suggests and let him get to know his new home without worrying too much about him being a little keet statue. Your worrying might even be stressing him out! smile

He will come around when he feels safe. It could take weeks or months, as has been said. He is just a small creature in a big new situation, doing the best he can to figure out his life.

I don't know anything about the poop you ask about, but looking for signs of molting is great advice.
