Julie:

Sorry for the late reply -- I only just saw your message.

The behavior sounds like Panama could be wanting to nest. What you describe sounds very much like a broody hen. However, birds can surprise you; I've seen a couple of cocks who acted very like hens.

Under the circumstancees, keep an eye on her health. Is she still active? Still eating the same as usual? You might also want to see if she has an obvious bulge that might indicate she has an egg.

As for the change in her behavior towards you, has something changed in your life? Are you wearing something new or doing something differently? A change in routine might explain why she acts differently.

Hoping this message arrives in time to be useful,

Bruce
