Not to disappoint other budgie owners, but I have the cutest, sweetest little bird in the world!

I either read in one of the stickies or was told in a post that budgies who are closely bonded to their human companions (I won't say I own her), have a higher likelihood of egg laying. I would like to learn more about the physiological and psychological reasons behind this behavior. When I asked of LoVey might be going into breeding condition, I pretty much knew she was. As I mentioned before, LoVey is very strongly bonded to me. I want to do everything I can to prevent egg laying. I've made sure there are no obvious nesting areas, lowered her protein intake, darkened the room and rearranged her cage frequently. Is there anything I should be doing regarding my interacting with her? I'd love any suggestions as well as articles that address this issue. I tried Google but it gave me links that showed you how to bond. Apparently, I don't know the key to getting the answers I need through search engines lol. I know I'm being a worry wart...
