Default Quarantine in a non-budgie-proofed room

I've got Erica sat in quarantine at the moment (which is clearly driving both her and Jimi nuts, if the amount of flock-calling that's happening at the moment is anything to go by), and I'm a bit worried about Erica's welfare with regards to getting out and about.

The room she's in (I live in a small apartment, so lacking in options here) isn't really budgie-proofed, and there are a lot of small places she could fall down the back of that I wouldn't be able to get to. I'm wondering if there's anything much I could do to help with that - I was considering just putting down a decorator's sheet to block off the difficult spots, but how frequently would I have to do this for her to learn the room in its current form safely? With Jimi, we had problems with him deciding he was going to fall behind the back of the sofa a few times, before he realised that the curtain rails would be his turf. I'm going to be ordering a larger cage for her today (which I can then cannibalise and make into an even larger cage for the pair of them, should they elect to live together), which should help a bit, but does anyone have any other suggestions?

Hi Gerry. I'm sure others will offer more helpful replies (when they wake up ). I will be interested in what they say too. Good luck.

A decorator's curtain is a great idea, if you get a few, you can block off doorways as well as potential hazard spots.

I would use something like that until she gets her bearings around the room. The first several times she flies around, she'll probably be a bit scared of the new space, which is the scenario where she'd panic and get stuck behind the sofa or something. After she is comfortable in that space and knows her way around pretty well, I'd say you can remove the curtains and she'd probably be fine.

Obviously, anytime she's around, you'd have to remove any dangerous items, like vases she could knock over, hazards, etc, but after a bit I reckon it'd be fine without the cloth
