I was all set to change the bedding in my buttons cage, but she's gone broody. She seems serious about it too. My catahoula was visiting as he often does with the quial, she got off the nest but only went a few inches then twittering menicingly, got right back on. I covered the exposed side of her cage cause we are expecting storms tomorrow. I figured she would not go back to her nest after that. But less than 5 minutes later she reclaimed her turf and resumed her duties. My question is how many days should I let her sit, before I clean the cage? I won't mess with the nest, but I really don't want the cage to go with out cleaning for 3 more weeks.
