Janet M. seeks advice,
My African grey “Sheba” is showing signs of making a nest — any suggestions on how to stop her?
Thank you for any advice. Jan
Is this the first time she has shown broody behavior?
How old is she?
Also, are you petting her below her neck? Stroking her body?
If so, stop and keep your hand’s neck up only.

Do you have materials in the cage she can use to build a nest?
A hut, paper, etc? If so, take it out.
Do you have a strong full spectrum or daylight bulb mounted close to the top of her cage, on a timer?
If not, please install one, it can help control hormonal behavior.
You can find the lighting items here lighting
Please also read our BLOG posts on Lighting and how it affects the birds.
If you need help placing a lighting order, please give me a call at 877-287-0810 Monday through Friday 10-4 CST.
