Your pet bird will nap throughout the day and sleep overnight. Thus you need to give your bird some privacy to get the rest it needs. Position the cage out of direct sunlight and away from drafts. The cage should be in a place where family members gather but not in the main traffic area of the house. If your family works or goes to school in the daytime, your bird can nap at its leisure. Your bird may tuck its head under a wing or snuggle it down into the chest area. Birds usually close their eyes while sleeping. Try not to startle your bird when it is napping. Cover the cage at night with a cloth cover that doesn’t restrict airflow but creates a dark place for your bird to sleep. This cover also makes your bird feel more secure that predators won’t sneak up to the cage. For more information, contact your veterinarian Glendale, AZ.
