    He moves his beak underneath them like he is eating no matter if they move across the pen he goes where they r and starts it again then he does the same motion on their backs. I also caught him yesterday face to face with one of the babies and he wasnt making a sound but it was like he was miming to the baby. Strange i thought[​IMG]just open and closing his beak. Silent talking

    Or he see's himself as the protector and is herding them around or preening them
