    Hi Elaine - fortunately I don't have this problem. But...
    how old is your bird? How long have you had her?

    I'm NOT an expert, but I would work on socailizing her with
    others. You may need to clip her wings (don't worry, they
    grow back!) to calm her down a bit.

    Anyone else with ideas?

    Good luck and keep us posted
