Default Frantic/Baffling Behavior

Lots of changes I won't go into detail about -- we lost Monet (I posted about her emergency vet trip, but several other things contributed to her passing), bought 1 male and "rescued" a m/f pair. We were going to keep the pair caged cuz our conure has a history of occasionally going after other female birds, but they got out of their cage -- luckily that hasn't been a problem.

However, after two weeks or so with no problems, the female has suddenly started frantically digging at the food tray/trying to get under it. The previous owners had been feeding them colored pellets, so I ran out and got a bag of those, along with some millet, but that didn't solve the problem. Any idea what's up? She doesn't look underfed...

Hi Ken, sorry to hear about Monet, your hen is most probably looking for a nesting site, what colour is her cere, is it brown and crusty looking?
Has she had access to a cuttle bone, she will need this for calcium . You can discourage breeding and stopping the hen coming into condition have a read through this article.

I agree with Cathy -- it sounds to me like nesting behavior which you are going to want to discourage.
