Baby Sun Conure

I'm considering purchasing this bird from a pet store. I don't know much about parrots, but I read somewhere that if the parrot leaves his feathers "fluffed" for more than a day or two that it might be an indication of illness.

He (she?) seems active and OK to me, but again, I'm inexperienced. Can you give me your opionion on this particular bird based on the attached photo? I know it's better to see the bird in person, but since I don't own it yet, this is the best I have. Your opinion is appreciated.

That is a beautiful picture! It looks a lot like my sun conure. Congratulations, you'll love having one. They really are a joy.

I purchased the sun conure today! He (she?) was so active and sweet. I brought along a family member who knows much more about birds than I do, and he said he looked just fine. So we're on our way!
