    I had to put her in a travel carrier because the cage wouldn't
    fit in the car. I have her in my bedroom byherself in her
    cage, she has never been around other birds so i was going to
    let her adjust to me first before i ever introduced her to my
    other tiels. Actually i think she has worn herself out she is
    finally still and more relaxed but still on the bottemof the
    cage w/ her head down. I'm not sure but i put a few toys in
    her cage because she didn't have any, maybe they scared her,
    so i took them out. Getting better i guess. Thanks for ur
    advice.
