Hi everyone!
I am new to this forum and desperate. I have a two year old cockatiel named Pietri who I love dearly. I have been dealing with her being a chronic egg layer and an extremely hormonal female tiel. I am currently going to a CAV near my home who has been aiding me in treating her hormonal issues. She started on the Lupron injections before she became hormonal again and we switched her to the Deslorelin implant about a month ago. She doesn't seem to be responding to it, she is doing her mating dance, self masturbating under her wings, and vent winking. I have and continue to manipulate her environment with cage shock, manipulate the light cycle (she is getting 14-15 hours of sleep every night), encourage foraging activities, and manipulate the amount of food she is getting. I'm just curious if anyone knows if the hormonal behavior is normal with the implant? (she has not laid since late March) or if it sounds like its not working? I would also love to hear other people's experience with the implant.

I’m afraid I don’t have experience, but others here do. My only understanding is that it does take a bit longer to take effect, but I would think a month would have made some difference.
