Thank you so much! Is there something different I should do with his cage? He loves his toys but I worry I put too much in it.Welcome to the forums!
It appears he has a bit of bronzing. This is fairly normal in young parrots especially as they are rough on their feathers.
A few of them look like stress bars too which are also from being rough by rolling around/playing on his back like lots of GCC like doing!
It should all molt out and be replaced by perfect feathers in the next few months.
Here’s a picture of what my GCC looked like when I brought him home vs. him now:
While he didn’t have bronzing he had lots of stress bars.

Your baby is a cutie btw! 😍
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
Good points! Thank you! I’ll look into them.His cage looks okay!
Though, I would remove the bells on toys that have them, as the clapper aren’t always very secure.
The foraging toy up top is not 100% safe either.
I have the same one but can’t trust it as it’s almost small enough for my GCC or Quaker to get their head stuck in.
This forager is much safer and, IMO, offers more fun! My GCC loves it!

Just one more thing, the two colorful toys, me personally, I would remove them. The clips aren’t safe and the beads appear to be painted rather than dyed. You can check with a wet paper towel, if they’re painted no color will come off.
When looking for a clip, use stainless steel or aluminum and they must twist shut, and twist very tightly!
I’m not trying to scare you or anything. I can tell you already adore your little guy!
Here’s a few sites I like to order from for natural toys and toy parts.

The other two toys you have are great though! When getting him more I’d just keep in mind to look for more natural toys.
