Post by Baz » Thu Jan 03, 2008 4:50 pm

I was just wondering if any one has any ideas of the best ways for ringnecks to sleep. Blanket over cage? or not? Silent at nght? or leave a radio playing? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you :P

Birds require at least 8 to 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep at night. It's really up to the bird if they like to be covered at night. I don't cover any of my birds the larger ones usually have it all pulled in their cage by morning any way :? IRN's and cockatiels have night frights and sometimes prefer to be covered.

I cover the top half of cage so that when day light appears it gradually wakes Kiwi and Peach. I also keep noise levels to a low if any at all.

birds need silence and dark in the night for sleeping, if you havent any dark and silent place in your house you must use a dark color blanket over cage and as much as you can silent.

be careful with putting things over the cage because some things can be ingested by the birds and make them sick.
