    I have a 8 mth old ( I think roo) is in the middle of molting and is acting funny, it's sorta staying by itself, not really running around. Standing still looks like he falls asleep, and moves his head like he's drunk, other then that he's acting fine, walking, pooping normal, eating, and drinking, no signs of injury, or sickness, nose looks clear, eyes look good, I have pics and a video but I don't know how to post them to this..I separated him last wk, he is in a cage in my garage, giving him Gatorade, and food, keeping warm, any suggestions would be great, thanks

    New feathers can irritate, they can even cause the behavior you are seeing.
