What does this behavior tell you?

Birds are huddling together between the feeding and drinking lines in large and small groups.

Prompt action is needed: raise the tempera-ture by 0.5-1.0°C (1-2°F) and check the flock behavior after 20-30 minutes. The huddling could also be related to a disease or a strong post-vaccination reaction (fever).

In any case – increase the tempera-ture to help the flock make a quicker recovery.
