First of all, why did you take her out of the cage to take
her home? Was the cage too big or what? No offense intended.
I'm sure that she's stressed from the move. Alot of birds
get used to where they are positioned and don't want to be
move and will raise cain if done so.. others it won't
bother. She's probably stressed out from the move and where
you put her. Also, were there alot of other cocatiels where
she was before, like you have now? Give us alittle more info
to help you. I'm pretty sure she's stressed out and upset.
Hold her alittle and let her get more used to you and maybe
even keep her cage isolated from all of the other birds and
introduce them slowly to each other. I would try moving her
out of the bird room first and then when I did put her in
there, try and keep her at the same height as where she was
before. You should relax too. She can feel you being upset.
