How about light?

I have a light next to Bills house, its on almost all the time. I hear on here about getting him 12 hours of sleep. While he does sleep, the light is on. Should I turn it off. My house is not cold, but I think the light may give Bill a little bit oh warmth? I sometimes let him stay out at night. He climbs up top, or just perches on the cage door. He doesn't like going in at night anymore. My wife sometimes puts him in and shuts the door. She uses a long stick and Bill climbs right on and goes in real nice. Bill growls and bits at the stick when I try to put him in at night. I wouldn't try it with my hand! I do put him in the cage during the day when I'm going to be gone for awhile with the stick. I don't mind leaving him out at night, I found out that he was always allowed free roam at his last place before me?

Re: How about light?

I think the light could effect the level of sleep Bill gets. Also, leaving him out at night could cause an accident. If someone were to go into the room where he is, and not see him on the floor should he fall, it could be very dangerous to the bird. We always look at safety first. Whether the bird wants to sleep in his cage or not would always be secondary to keeping him safe and giving him a good night's sleep.

Re: How about light?

If you want a night light, consider a very low wattage bulb in the 5 to 15 watt class and consider a 'soft glow' style bulb. Do not set an open light bulb close to any Parrot.

In each Morning's early light; there is a promise, an Amazon makes!
