Sigh, Lada has started "gurging". Looking for any tips and tricks anyone out there might have to help. I'm not so much looking for explanations. I know whats going on and why and I am already working to reduce, well... in a constant battle really against the dreaded eckie hormones (aren't we all). Strangely/thankfully she does not gurg to/on me despite her attachment to me. However, she is gurging all over the couch constantly which is difficult to manage. Obvious nesting site. She only recently started doing this. She has been through hormonal periods before and was never this bad. I used to let her get it out of her system as there really was no stopping it outside of say expensive and seemingly unnatural drugs. However, as of late, she seems determined to "coat the entire couch" sigh... Couch already has a slip cover and I put down a blanket now too just in case she sneaks by me. Now please note, I am now completely discouraging her getting time on the couch to begin with. The blankets/slip cover are just added precaution. Problem is, per usual, if not the couch, it will always be somewhere else. Under the table, behind the fridge, etc. I am still bird proofing as she discovers new nooks and crannies. I recognize this is almost entriely my doing and I need to be MUCH better about our interactions, food, activities, etc. Lada has always been one of those really difficult laser focused nesty birds. Zero and I do mean zero interest in toys, and rarely food motivated. She is and has always been 100% focused on nesting nesting nesting and sometimes I just have given in slightly in past because its constant! Other than the obvious fix of doing all the normal recommendations to discourage nesting, hormones, etc. any suggestions in the interim to deal with the gurg problem? Thanks!
