So Emery is 3 months old and quilling. She is still eating all her food and drinking a ton. But lately when I get her out for bonding she won't uncurl for about 5 mins or so. Her cage is between 75-77 degrees depending on time of day (location of sun into my room) so I don't believe she is trying to hibernate. Is she just a heavy sleeper, being a brat, or just not wanting to move since she's sensitive at the moment?

She's still a baby, so between that and quilling she probably needs extra sleep and likely doesn't want to move since she's probably a bit tender.

That being said, what is her light schedule like? Is she getting a solid 12-14 hours of light each day? Inconsistent light can also lead to hibernation attempts. Most people just put a small lamp on a timer.

I just read about the light consistency this morning. So I opened up my blinds. Currently my room naturally gets about 13 hrs of light. I'm going to look into a more permanent light after I get paid Friday.
