    You probably can't post video until you have a few more posts [​IMG]

    They might be nervous or cold or itchy... Their reflexes get going when they're handled young like that, almost like they want to jump out of their skin. Or they might be cold or itchy from new feathers growing in, getting rid of the chick down.

    Being placed on the cloth sounds like what's doing it. I would say they're probably nervous. Are they alone when you put them on the cloth, or do you put the whole group on it at the same time?
