Someone recently told me that young birds shake when they are growing in new feathers or on their first molt. Supposedly it's because the new feather growth is painful esp. for young birds. I'm not an expert but I recently saw one of my young birds shaking and when I asked about it I was told by another pigeon owner that they shake b/c of the new feather growth.
yes they're in a new loft with an outdoor avary, they (6 WOE tumblers) are closer together in their new loft because their old home was a barn and ive noticed a little bit of pecking, at first i thought it was maybe mating but i don't think it is, there is alot of cooing aswell and afterwards they twitch their wings alot, (like their heart beat is making their wings twitch) cheers tom
they sound fine..if they are cooing that is a good sign, twitching the wings can be a hen wanting to mate..shaking is excitement or anticipation, like mine will shake when the are being fed..or when they first come out of the loft they are nervouse or excited.
oh good atleast i know theyre not the only ones lol, ive bought some stuff today (forgot the name) it gets rid of lice, mites, worms and all other unwanted creatures, want to do them now because they've got a nice new clean loft
