Nesting places

So might sound silly but just looking for some idea, how to block top of kitchen cabinets…one of my parrots claimed top of kitchen cabinet as her nest, she wants to spend time there and gets annoyed if anyone approaches, because of how our house is I can’t restrict her out of the kitchen, because that would mean I have to close her in the living room( tried that and she got really stressed, was screaming and madly flying around, nothing could calm her down) tried to block access to it with box ( silly idea really, not sure what I was thinking, she chewed hole in the box and sat there and was very delighted but I should see that coming) then we tried to diy kind of safe bird spikes ( it was cable ties around untreated pine sticks and we just placed it on the top of cabinet) which worked for a little, but is not a threat anymore, she just basically forces herself in between, I am slightly torn because I gave up at this point and just let her sit there but then she is supposed to be female and I am slightly worried about egg laying, as well she slightly refurbished top of the cabinet ( thankfully I don’t think landlord will ever realise that unless he will stand on stool and look is there any chewing damage)

Only thing I can think of is ..... start a collection of something ....
On top of my cabinets to deter unwanted parrot squatters I started a collection of ornaments there's a couple of old copper kettles, plus some brass bird ornaments, half a dozen or so old vases.... all large all heavy and all taking up prime space that was wanted by feathered monsters . Only down side is I have to keep taking them down to wash / dust them :risas3:

Hi I can understand your position but it can be resolved by buying a nest box and setting it at a high point in the living room, I have a pair of ringnecks that is searching for a place to nest in, but in my case they have a few choice's they can make. none in the kitchen.

If I had male and female I would give them box let her lay and then try to swap eggs for dummy eggs… but I have two females (presumably) so I am a bit worried to give her box… these days most of the time they got separate time out of cages, it was to many arguments going on😂
