I noticed that sometimes when he eats his food he looks like he’s squinting or slowly closing his eyes. I don’t believe he is sick because there are no other signs. His poop looks completely normal. He loves to fly. Is he just tired? Is this a sign of pleasure? He just got weened off liquids and I noticed he likes to take mini naps when we hold him.

Could be that he is just getting sleepy. Can you post photos or videos?

Yes. Sorry about that! I noticed that he doesn’t continue to squint when he eats. Also for context of what’s he done today is roughly 20 min of target training with two breaks and some flight training. He’s already flying towards me and my s/o(under 5ft distance)as well as flying on top of my phone(About 3 times today), and he loves our lamp because of the heat. He seems to have a nick of flying so we also started some flight training by using millet to coax him to fly to us.

Aww, beautiful conure!! He’s probably just a sleepy baby, but hopefully someone else will have a better answer than that!!

That’s what I was thinking haha. 3/4 times we visited him at the breeder, he was always eating while every other baby bird was sleeping or playing :roflmao:
