    I have the sweetest NHR chick thats about a week old, she sits on the bed with me and watches TV, eats out of my hand, im even teaching her to step up like a parrot lol!!! But sometimes she will be sitting there and all of a sudden she'll jump up and run around in circles with her wings flapping she literally looks like a nascar. I use to have a duckling that also did this. What is it???? and why is she doing it???

    I have a 3 year old human nephew that does that sometimes while we are watching TV. Usually he does it after I feed him a bunch of ice cream - lol!

    At about a week old they discover they have wings and start 'practicing'. [​IMG]
