Sleeping

So these days I've had, let's say visitors, and I was obliged to sleep in a certain room that happened to be my parrot's sleeping room (since it is dark and quite, won't disturb his sleep)
He usually get in a dark room with a cover at like 8-9 PM and I remove the cover the next day at 8-9 AM.
I noticed he doesn't sleep normally? I woke up once and heard him moving in the cage even after like 4 hours of him being sleepy (then covered) and in the morning, like when I want to go and remove his cover, he is also moving around the cage.
I don't know if he just sleeps too much, or I have to make him sleep like 2 hours during the day in case he had a sort of insomnia.
What do you think?

Re: Sleeping

I put Rudy to bed around 8:30 - 9PM, then uncover him at 7:30 - 8AM. By the time I uncover him he's moving around, but he's not complaining about being covered up before then so I assume he's OK with it. He does take a nap or two during the day.

He sleeps in my room with me at night, so I can be sure no guests are messing with him at night when they are here. If he moves around during the night I sleep though it. I'm newly owned by a Macaw so I can't offer any advice, just tell you how it is at my house.

Re: Sleeping

Hahnzel moves around in his cage at night after he goes to bed. He will move around when I go to bed since he sleeps semi-covered in our bedroom. If I hear him moving around alot I will give him some light from my phone or small flashlight I keep in my nightstand so he can see what he is doing in the dark.

Re: Sleeping

I put Rio in a her sleep cage in our bedroom. Hubby likes to stay up late watching tv and I don't want to disturbed Rio's schedule. She is sun up to sun down, but she will stay pretty much quiet in her cage until about 8 ish. Then she will get down and peek under the blanket to say "hellooooooo, I'm awake" She is never alarming about it, just whistles at me. She will take a couple of naps throughout the day too.

Re: Sleeping

Mango is always active though, unless he is absolutely bored so I see him trying to close his eyes. Sometimes he closes them for more than just seconds, can that be referred to sleepy position?

Re: Sleeping

That's what Rudy does when he gets sleepy, he closes his eyes, then opens them, closes them, then opens them...until he falls asleep. Like a little baby does.
