Alexanderine twisting neck
by Mercedes Carlin
My male Alexanderine, Alex is now a year old. At different times he twists his neck around quite vigorously. I have another male Alexanderine, Biggy who is at least three years old- we found him a year ago but he has the rings around his neck so he would be two to three years old. I have never seen Biggy do this and Alex only seems to do it when he is put in a cage.
Most of the day they are out and about and sometimes he goes to my neighbour for a visit and is transported in a small cage. As soon as you put him in he starts turning his neck around. Has anyone else experienced this? Or does anyone know why? Any help would be appreciated.
