What causes my Goffin to have jerking motions at times?

Every once in awhile, my Goffin, Kenja gets these jerky neck movements. He sometimes will continue for a minute or so.

It scares me that he make be having seisures? What can I do?

Goffin jerking neck

It is hard to say, because only an in person visit with an avian vet can determine if it is a health issue or not. It certainly sounds like it.

The only other time a bird may jerk their neck, would be to bring food up from their crop. If this is not the case, then please do Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird.
