I don't know how many are familiar with this, but thought I would bring it up. I am trying something new with my OE cockrells this year that has been done for a long time with other similar game birds to aid in greater breast and wing development.
The swinging perch is simply a perch that is suspended by either chain or rope and can move back and forth much like a swing, it is typically placed out in the pen away from the night roost to allow for a daytime or even night roost location. The swinging action requires the bird to balance and adjust position and makes a great "play place" for daytime cockrell activity.
I am curious who else uses this type of set-up for conditioning efforts. I would like to hear from you, I have done this in the past with other game birds but have not tried it with the OE up till now.
