Yeah, it might sound kinda weird. My keets sumtimes do that. They sorta shake like a dog to an their feathers spread and they look twice their size! Their so cute when they do that, but im not sure if it means anything. does it mean they are hungry? or sick??

It can mean that they are cold. Do you think he might be? Or I've read that it means they are content. You be the judge. I figure if I'm cold, then Gun's probably cold so I turn the air up.

They do this often times when they are cold or wish to sleep. What they do is they let air around into the place between their feathers and skin and so there is a warm protective bubble of air surrounding them.

It's completely normal.

Its also a way to get rid of dust on the feathers if they have been sitting for a long time and they may do it right before they do something else, like fly.

Totally normal to fluff and shake their feathers into shape. If they stay fluffed up, thats a sign of trouble. As long as it's just a quick fluff all is good.......and Soooooooo cute I might add. :-)

that's normal don't worry.it's only when the stay fluffed up for a long period of time that something maybe wrong.then you would check to nose and the eyes or the nostrils are watery looking take you keet to the vet at once.
