I saw an old man do this once. He was checking to make sure the cock birds he was thinking of buying were actually cocks. He held the male in his hand (You know I was not going to use the other word for a male pigeon in that sentence!) and if the males he was buying responded, he knew what he was getting. If they did not respond, the bird was either a hen or too timid for him to purchase.

I agree with Henry... Besides getting some one to buy those Birds may mean his Kids get a REAL Meal that Night.:eek: Judge NOT lest ye be Judged... Dave

Uncle Buck is saying the guy he knew held a cock bird in his hand and waved it in front of other cocks to test their attitude. If they respond with the common male behavior they were good birds, if they did nothing then they were not good enough, attitude wise, or they were females. He wanted tough confident males.
