head twitching

Hello, I have a one year old GC Conure. About a week ago I noticed that he has a little head twitching going on. Almost like a person with a tick.

He is eating fine and acting fine otherwise.

I have read a few things online in regards to calcium deficiencies. He was weaned onto a pelleted diet (the colored kind) and that's all he's ever eaten (other than occasional seed treats).

I also read that it could possibly be a neurological problem. Given that he's still whistling and saying my dogs name, I'm thinking that it's probably (and hopefully) not that.

I'd just like a professional opinion of what I should do.

Thank you.
