Im not a really early morning person and am looking for a cage cover that best keeps out the light. After doing some research it seems a lot of commercial covers don't keep the light out very well.
What do you guys use? And what works the best?
I also use bed sheets. What helps is the room has a darkening shade on the window. Not a blackout, but keeps it from getting bright. Even if they wake up while still under the covers, my birds are still quiet. I'm sure that's not true with all birds though. Depends on the individual. Using a dark color should help too.
I got a dark navy cotton blend bedding set from Walmart for about $8, and the two sheets are enough to cover my 3 cages. I'm also a night owl, and just get up to take off the covers and go back to bed, LOL
Do you think this would work??

One of my avian vets says the same thing. I never used to cover. Robin has been uncovered most of his life, so he still objects.
It's just personal choice... My reason is that if I didn't cover them, they would wake me up too early in the morning!
