Satisfy nest-making urges
If your bird starts to show breeding behaviors, help alleviate stress during this time by providing a nest and nesting materials. All-natural bedding materials are ideal, since they are made of items birds might find in the wild. In addition to satisfying the nest-building instinct, nests and nesting materials provide additional warmth, security, and stress relief. Watch and see what happens once you accommodate this nesting urge. You might find your bird "decorating" her nest. She may keep busy arranging and rearranging her nest, a very fascinating process to observe.
Behaviors that suggest nesting behavior
- Mature females searching for nesting materials
- Scratching or tearing at paper cage lining
- Plucking their own feathers to use as nesting material
They can be very resourceful. If conventional nesting materials are not available, they will look for alternative items such as newspaper to begin construction of their nest. In some females, the urge to build a nest is so strong that they may resort to feather picking. Removing the shredded newspaper from your cage without providing nesting materials to replace it can force some birds into this destructive plucking behavior.
