Shivering?

Hi folks, just looking for a bit of advice.

Nico, my Quaker, is shivering. Like all day? If I’m not actively playing with him or he isn’t engaged in something, he shivers. My house is at a steady 72F, and he has a heat lamp to sit under if he so desires.

He’s eating normally, vocalizing normally, playing, jumping around, etc. his weight is good, all that. Should I be concerned? He’s my first Quaker so I don’t know if this is common.

Does something like this warrant a vet visit or should I just keep my eye out for any changes?

I am not sure what this is, either.

Sometimes my Quakers have been puffy and then seem like they’re trembling or shivering. I thought it was just part of being puffy or happy. Like, really happy. Showing me how happy and big feathered they can be.

Got a video. Here

I was thinking on it a bit more and I’m wondering if he’s in pain. :( He’s been babying his deformed foot a bit more than usual. It looks normal though…

I don’t see anything concerning about this bird. I see that yes, he does have a back toe turned forwards. Otherwise he looks fat and happy. What am I supposed to be noticing? When does the shivering you’re concerned about happen?

Its so quick...not enough for me to evaluate. I see it. But its nano seconds ! Keen observer. If you can get longer that would be helpful.

But omg what an absolute cutie dreamboat! Looks great overall

Sorry guys, give me some time to get a better video- he’s tricky! I’m thinking I may need to set up my tripod and camera

Yes, I’m sorry. I just can’t tell what it is you’re referring to. Otherwise, what a cute baby.

Sometimes, Willow gets really big and fluffy and seems to be trembling, but I think it’s just part of getting as puffy as possible, maybe to look happy? I saw Lucy do that, too.

Yeah I’m not sure. I’ve never had a bird do this so I don’t know if I should be concerned or not.

Lol, that’s the alarm sound I think… he makes it at the vacuum and broom too
