    Thank you.

    I don't think it is star gazing, just kind of shaking her head, after she eats mostly...

    Can you see it now?

    That is weird it's like she has to shake the food down.

    I'd say 2 to 3 inches of snow here.

    She's wiggling that crop or the esophagus to get food down or something. Her weight is good? Are suspicious of a partial block? I see mine do that for longer grass pieces. It may just be a 'habit' for her or an adjustment to a abnomily in her anatomy. Not life threatening but maybe enough where she needs to do this little maneuver. My guesses only.

    Ralphie, you need to design one that rotates and has the plucking fingers in a cork screw pattern. The objective is to drop the bird in the top, and have in descend to the bottom from the cork screw pattern with an opening at the bottom for the bird to fall out once it is plucked.
