Blue does that when he's trying to repeat a word or phrase back like he's trying to talk (maybe one day soon *fingers crossed*).

is she calm and sitting comfy when she does it? listen close, is she making a sort of crunchy, grinding sound? if you can hear a grindy, snapping sounds... don't panic! mine do it when they are settled. usually toward evening. i am not sure exactly what they are doing, but i call it "beak grinding" i think it might be a keets way of helping avoid overgrown beaks. i like to listen to it cause i know then that they are truely content.
if no sounds, is kirby preening at the upper breast feathers often? if so, come back and explain, ok?

She does it during the day not even close to bed time. When I got home at 3:00 she was doing it. No she doesnt preen her breast feathers a lot, or not that I can see. I will listen tomorrow if she is doing it because she is covered for the night.

usually when they are ruffling those feathers alot and doing the beak thing, they may have something on their tongue or beak they are trying to get rid of and fluffing those feathers is the way they get it out. sometimes i bet they wish they could spit! hehehe

they just grind the upper and lower parts together, almost like grindig teeth. only it is not from stress and doesn't ruin their beaks! it seems to be a comfort thing. i am always happy to hear a new addition start doing it, cause it has always signaled,(for me anyway) that the newcomer has settled in.
