Strange cockatiel behavior

It sounds like she might be about to lay an egg. If she continues to sit on the bottom of the cage and seems stressed, she may be egg bound. If she is not on a healthy pellet diet like Harrison's then becoming egg bound is likely.

Please take your bird to an avian vet asap, if your birds seems stressed, you don't see her eat or drink, her dropping have changed etc.
