Default Lemony behaving badly

Hi..
As you might remember, Lemony is very determined to become a mother again. We don't agree.
Here's what she is doing... is she just looking for nesting spots?
Since Sunday, during her out of cage time, she is determined to fly to my supply bookshelf, which holds all my 'birdie' stuff... food, millet, toy box, etc.
Most of the stuff is in covered plastic containers. I have (HAD, I mean) a couple of baskets w/food dishes and stuff in them. She is of course, trying to shred them. She is also flying wildly about the room w/Ivy trailing her like a shadow.
Yesterday, the door was open a crack and out she went. I was able to rescue her quickly and return her to their room. She seems nervous and flighty.
when it was time for bed, she followed the routine and went right in. Today, same stuff.. very edgy and seems looking for something ... like maybe a place to nest?
Should I try keeping her in?? Or just let her be as long as she is safe?
PS.. she is still decimating her cuttlebones.. I replace every few days. She has two shred toys in her cage.. fresh veggies to shred everyday ().

It certainly sounds like your tenacious little Lemony is looking for a lovely nesting site again. Or. . . is she searching for Cody?

Does she happen to be molting? That can make budgies more "edgy" than usual.

Is she in conditon?

Are you giving the girls out-of-cage time when the boys are or separately?

Hi Faerybee...
To answer your questions... She seems to be starting to molt yet again. I found some suspicious for Lemony type feathers today.
Re: In condition.. her cere never seems to change much. I haven't been using food to encourage her being in condition.. and they are covered about 11 hours per day.
Out of cage time has been together lately, with 'parental oversight'. I have not seen extra preening, etc going on. Cody has other girls to worry about now (and no one is very interested back).
I think she is trying to nest, too. Goodness, she often baffles me. She still likes her alone time and Ivy bugs her all the time

Well, the molt could be making her have more "nervous energy" and it does sound as if she's looking for a place to nest...

I wish I had more/better information for you.

Hopefully aluz will see your post when she comes on-line again.
Ana has a great deal of knowledge and experience.
She will be able to offer more insight than I.

OK... one more little thing and then I'll stop obsessing on this topic. Here is Lem's poo from overnight. Does this look like soon to be laying an egg poo? OR.... is she sick?


Also, her cere seems 'normal' for her...

At this stage, her poops are still normal sized. When she is about to lay, the poops will be truly massive.
I have sent you a more detailed message on the subject at hand.
