    Mouth breathing with wings askew is generally nothing more than a method of reducing body temperature. If accompanied by sneezing and nasal discharge they may be suffering a respiratory infection - picture does not indicate that this is a problem. By the way picture is of two cockerels and one pullet.

    Hello sourland,

    Thank you very much for your answer, I am really thankful to you for this act!

    Yes, there is no sneezing and nasal discharge problem so that means, my birds are safe, anyways, Can you explain COCKEREL? What does its means?

    Thank you!

    have the two girls laid, because I have to agree that you appear to have two males there.

    Sorry, but everything about the two white birds says 'MALE'.

    In regards to the breathing, unless there are other symptoms, it's perfectly normal.
