    I've noticed my Drake Pekin doing this shaking thing with his head. What's going on? Is it normal? I've never noticed it before, until yesterday & today. It's like a shiver. It's weird. & it was 70° today...he's definitely not cold.

    Depends on the situation.....It can be excitement, aggression.....Explain what is happening when he does the behaviour.....



    Cheers!

    Well it could be either... this is the same Drake that has been acting more aggressive lately..but not to the point it's a problem. Just being more protective of Flossy & his pool, not wanting to mind me. Anyway, it's happening when I'm messing with Flossy or feeding them...giving them new pool water..etc. it could be aggression or excitement??!

    My Pekins do this all the time, mainly when they're happy!
