Hey Guybo, i have many friends and family in Fla and spend a lot of time there. I have several immature males in an outside flight with mature birds , these 8-10 month olds are acting like the mature males, i notice them trying to woo immature hens , but not the mature ones which really don't seem interested in their antics.Does Hades do the hanging down and displaying his wings thing? Hopefully he's young and will "get over it"soon.

Hades is around 10 months old. He hasn't been hanging upside down or anything. He's not much of an acrobat.
