Help! My 23 year old African Grey only wants to get in the b

My 23 year old African grey wants to do nothing but get into the bathroom, chew the linoleum behind the toilet, and then sit back there. She defends the bathroom from everyone and freaks out if you try to move her. She recently started doing it behind her cage as well.

Welcome to the forum! She is trying to nest but this means her endocrine system is out of whack because they are short day breeders and go into condition once the days start getting shorter (I suggest you re-evaluate her light schedule and twilight exposure). Mine loves to nest in the most hidden corner of the birdroom so what I do is put a couple of boxes in there (one inside the other) so she can chew them to her heart's content -she goes inside and chews and scratches with her claws the bottom of the box so, when this is gone, I simply exchange the box (es).
