Since this morning, she won't stop making her way underneath my computer desk. Main reason I don't want her there is you can see in the video, it is extremely dirty down there. She bites me if i get near and keeps making sounds and I just don't know why. The only thing that comes to mind is she is protecting her eggs but I don't see any eggs and we have no male cockatiels to impregnate her. She is always sleeping on my leg which i wish she was doing since i don't know what she is doing down there. I need help with this

She's treating that area like a nest. Birds don't actually get pregnant so they can lay eggs even if there isn't a male around to fertilize them. So she is definitely hormonal and looking for a nest. http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=32330 this sticky has some good tips on getting hormones under control.

Lol you are definitely her mate in her eyes and she will most likely lay a few eggs for you. Just follow the steps for hormone control and you will have your normal happy sweet bird back
