From the photos it seems Zuko is still in the process of finishing his moult, I'm seeing a few pin feathers on the forehead area.
As for the current condition of his plumage, surely with a good diet it will improve and you will see this in the next few moults.
Zuko could also have damaged some of his tail feathers on his previous home.
This will also change once he moults the tail feathers and grows in new ones.
Not all budgies will have the same energy levels and some are naturally slower, some can even be a little clumsier than others and that is okay.
You may also notice more of a difference if you are used to having the smaller, pet type budgies which are known to be quite energetic and even hyperactive at times.
English budgies are generally calmer and more laid back.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
