I have a Sun Conure (about 10 years old), and I noticed he recently sleeps on the bottom of the cage with my 1.5-year-old Sun Conure. Also, the 10-year-old Sun Conures feathers are puffed up. During the day, he usually stands on the perch and not on the floor of the cage.

Is this normal behavior due to Spring Time and possible wants to mate or a sign of illness?
