Two of my pigeons flap their wings a lot at feeding time. In fact they flap so much they blow the seed around. It seems like they do this as a competition thing. Sometimes they do it when they are out flying around-the one little guy kind of flaps in front of me, like he's showing off. What is this behavior? What does it mean?

My interpretation:

1. They are hungry and sense their feeding time.

2. They are getting ready go out and play and stretch.

3. It shows others they are in their territory, so back off!

Not necessarily in that order, and it depends on their feelings or mood.;)

They always do it AFTER they get their food. They all start pecking and then these two start flapping. Which, of course, blows their seeds around. By the time they are done flapping the seeds are scattered all over the cage.
