My 8 week old just sits in one place, does not want to move. And when we try to hold it, it starts to scream. Could it be ill?

It's always a good idea to take your bird to an avian vet for a wellness exam. I'd suggest you do it. Your bird should have a wellness exam once a yr.

However sounds like your bird is still trying to adjust to the new environment. In which case he just needs time to settle in.

That or something near it's cage is scaring it. I'd suggest moving things away from the cage for now as well. Could be a number of things.

I had a bird who was so scared when I brought her home almost named her "SPOT" bc she sat in ONE spot the whole time. Took her to the vets, she was healthy. She was just scared.

However that was my bird. You should get your's checked just to be sure he's not ill.
