sourwood issues

This is my young sourwood planted a few months ago. I know this is a tuff tree to grow. The coloring seems off a bit. It is a young tree and only has been in the ground a few months. Figured it could be shock. Also in the picture you will see three of four top branches snapped, one of which was coming in as the new leader die to tip dye back that was there when purchased. I’ve bought plenty of young trees but these do seem more floppy than most of my other trees. Is this due to bad overall condition of the tree along with the coloring ? Or is this coming amongst these trees ? I am curious if bigger birds may be landing on these top branches and bending them.
