It sounds as though your cockatiel is starting to settle in. The "chewing" noise is what a lot of people call beak grinding. Most parrots will do this when content, sometimes when they are about to go to sleep or just when they are getting comfortable. The same can be said for the one eye open, it doesn't mean that your cockatiel is fully comfortable in his/her surroundings yet but it is starting to trust you. They will sometimes close one eye when they are starting to trust you, kind of like I almost trust you but I better keep one eye open to be sure LOL! Your cockatiel should settle in well since it already sounds like she is on her way to contentment.

Good luck and keep us posted on her progress (or lack of progress) so we can help or just enjoy the stories
