Just wondered if anyone else's cockatiel rocks whilst falling to sleep/sleeping. It's very gentle. We've always read that rocking is always a bad thing or is to do with eggs. She seems really content and is currently asleep so we're not sure why she's doing it?

Any ideas?

it sounds like she views her cage/sleep area as a nest. Female birds will protect their nest and try to intimidate potential predators by puffing themselves up and rocking back and forth to make themselves look big and scary.
