Re: Restricting light

I don't think that covering the cage at night for sleeping reinforces breeding. I think the problem is if there are spaces within the cage that are covered & dark then those look like nests. A cover on the Outside of the cage just means security; its safe to sleep. As long as the cover is cage-darkening, then it also means nighttime-go-to-sleep. And I think that more hours of darkness tells birdie that it's Not-breeding season.

For me, my first action with your situation would be to cover them at night with darkness covers.
