I am a new owner of two Quaker babies which are about 4-5 weeks old now. Now, I used to own a Yellow-sided GCC, but she recently past at 4 months old. Sadly I am not sure what from, everything seemed to be fine, but we woke up one morning and she was gone. I suspect it was due our cookware, which at the time, I had no clue how deadly non-stick cookware could be.
Anyway, my question to you all is my baby Quakers, which are still being hand-fed and gaining weight, don't seem to be as active as my GCC when she was around their age. My GCC was much more active, running around, climbing on things, etc... My Quakers, who seem healthy otherwise, mostly just sleep. They are not very active at all. I have looked everywhere online for some type of growth chart for Quakers, but can't seem to find anything. I know that Quakers are different from GCC, but I am not sure what is normal activity, since all I have to base anything off of is my sweet late GCC, Pebbles.
I have inserted Videos below; hopefully, they work. Just so you can see the comparison between my Quakers and my GCC around the same age.
I would just like to know that my Quakers growth rate and stages of development are normal. Sincerely, concerned mommy.

Welcome to you and your new babies. I have no experience with parrots as young as yours, nor am I all that knowledgeable about what is typical behavior for such young parrots. Maybe someone on the Forum can be more helpful. My best suggestion would be to consult an avian-certified veterinarian with your questions.
