my baby 8 month old bird always looks sleepy

I got a 8 month old cockatiel from a breeder, the first night, i didnt notice, but the next day, it looked like my 5 year old bird, when he just wakes up, and i thought it was normal, but i compared the two, my first bird was all cheery, but the one i just got looked like its eyes were trying to close, hes all fluffy, and im wondering if hes sick, or just nervous, and scared

Bird looks sleepy all the time

If the bird is 8 months old, it isn't a baby. I am wondering if you meant 8 week old bird?

No matter what, a bird that sits looking tired or sleepy all day is sick. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird. Call the breeder and find out what avian vet they use. If the breeder doesn't take their birds to an avian vet, then you probably purchased a sick bird.
