Ringneck in corner of the cage

(Table View, Cape Town, South Africa)
I received a 26 day old blue ringneck today which I will be hand-rearing. The bird started going to a corner of the cage after a few hours. It scratches all the sawdust away and then keeps pushing itself into the corner with its head down. Should I be worried, or is it stress from being removed from the parents. I got the bird from a breeder.
