Beak dragging on wood

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My girls have a habit of "dragging" both sides of the beak on our wooden deck

 

They angle their head to one side and then the other while pulling back and dragging the sides of their beaks on the wood

 

This happen to anyone else ?

 

why do they do it?

Totally normal behavior. They are cleaning the sides of their beaks after eating.

Romans 3:23 – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 10:9-10 – that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
