    Is there a general age where they stop doing this?

    Basically, when they reach "puberty."

    Any idea about what age that would be for a polish? Trying to find the age and sex on these new wcbp (I think) that I've got.

    some of mine do it until about 4 months.

    Can you post a picture of your bird? We can probably help figure out how old it is. Give any pertinent info such as how long you've had it, and pics of when you got it if it's been a month or so.

    There are three. I don't know their age, gender or specific breed. I'm assuming they are WCBP mixes. [​IMG]

    Oops. This is the third one- her crest is much smaller. [​IMG]
