    Welcome to BYC. How old is she? Could she be molting? Head shaking can be from itching, a respiratory disease, and a crop problem. Feel of her crop for any fullness, or hardness, that could be a crop problem from something stuck in there like boud up grass. Impacted crop can turn into sour crop.
