Sleeping habits of gcc.

I have a 9 month old green cheek and notice that he sleeps either on the perch or by hanging on the upper backside of the cage. I bought one of those tents because I hear others say that the conures love sleeping in them. Mine won't go near it. What's normal?

Re: Sleeping habits of gcc.

My gcc has a small ferret hammock and he loves playing in it, it is his favorite toy, but he doesn't sleep in it. He sleeps on a parakeet sized perch (really skinny) but I have seen him sleep from hanging onto the wall bars too.

Re: Sleeping habits of gcc.

My gcc slept in the tent for the first two nights but hasn't used it since.

Re: Sleeping habits of gcc.

Aleta has two tents. One she loves and one I can't even convince her to go near it, even if I put treats in there. I don't think either is not normal. Depends on the bird. I made a fleece covered hoop and put it in her cage, and she will sleep there instead of the tent now, but I will still come into the room and find her hanging out in her tent.

Re: Sleeping habits of gcc.

Doodle sleeps for the most part hanging upside down from the top of her house, but once in awhile hanging on the side.

I can't get her to go near her snuggle hut....raises holy heck until I get it outta her site!

Sleeping habits of gcc.-nap-time.jpgMy two love to snuggle up in theirs. Since this pic was taken, I have gotten the Large size. As you can see, they can barely fit in the Medium, lol.

It's all up to the individual bird & their preferences...also, it takes some birds extra time to accept things we put in their cages.....

Good luck.....
