Sleeping Rhythm

Budgies need to sleep during the hours of darkness, just like humans. Did you know that they adapt their sleeping rhythm to yours? When you go to sleep, they usually go to sleep too, and when you're up, they are usually awake too. They love taking naps in the afternoon as well, just like some humans do :)

Or you can try to sleep with a budgie: it's nice and soft and warm...

If it's too bright at night (I used to live in Northern Norway, where the sun never sets during Summer), you'd better cover their cage and remove the cover again early morning. Otherwise they won't get any sleep, and that's not good for anyone. Always let your budgie find its perch before you switch off the light, and never switch on/off the light suddenly. Your budgie's eyes need to accomodate to new light intensities.


  1. I have a feeling I'll get to make a video like that in the future - starring you and your budgie... ;-)
