|Young Border Hen Not Quite Ready Yet
Monday Waving Border
Question: Jean writes: Some of my borders seem to make, from time to time, like a "wave" with one of their wings. Not stretching a wing but just like a slow big wave, if you know what I mean. Any reason for this?
Answer: Not sure I have ever seen the "wave". When coming into breeding condition, you expect the hens to do some flapping but that is both wings. Is the bird stretching? Is it hot and trying to cool itself? Is it frightened when it "waves"? Do you think the birds that wave have an injury? Any balance problems? Any one out their got any ideas?
