    Walking back and forth.

    What does it mean when tiel is walking back and forth on the stick?

    Beau does that. I used to call it a cockatiel dance until I read somewhere (I think perhaps in the cockatiel body communication thread that's stickied) that it's kind of an anxious thing - they often do it when they want out of their cage, or want something that you have, or are impatient, etc., I believe.

    That's correct. They all do it. Especially Mister Freddie!

    Ok, thanks for the info! When I got the bird, tiel was puffed up and was cleaning himself a lot in the new cage. Is that normal? Right now, he is still puffed up. Is he sick?He also started eating his own poop, then he stopped.
