Acting different isn't quite descriptive enough...How is he different? Is he grumpier? Does he hide more? Is he sleepier? Less active? If you give us some more details, we'll be able to help more. Is he still eating and drinking the same amount? And yes, how old is he?

As far as the grumpiness and hiding, and if you don't know his age, then it could be quilling related. If he's sleeping more, though, that could be normal or not. What temperature is his cage at? And do you have him on a light schedule? Sometimes sleeping more and being less active can be signs of being too cool.

Do you have a heating element or is that the temperature of the room?
