Hello everyone. My 2 year old male cockatiel has been acting a bit weird lately. He tends to sneak in into dark spaces and sits there for hours. Anyone who goes there gets a terrible bite! Once he got in my closet and started shedding boxes. What's wrong and what should I do? Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks!

bird trying to breed

My female cockatiel used to do that. She claimed my "skivvies" (undergarments) drawer as her nest site! I had to keep it closed if she was around and in her hormonal nest mood. I hope your little guy gets over it soon. As enigma said, just try to prevent his access to those dark places.

Peppy has just started on her 3rd clutch this year, fortunately in the cage this time. I'm thinking of getting a cage in the bedroom next year so I can put her to bed earlier and hopefully stop this.
