Budgies in the Bedroom


Hi…I was just reading some information on your website about where to place a birdcage. We Have a bird cage in our oversized master bedroom, however I read that bedroom is not a good idea.Why?? We have 6 parakeets in a huge cage and have had them in here for a year or so…

They seem to love it as do I…
thanks – Linda

If it is working for you, don’t fix what’s not broken.
Generally , birds may not do well in a bedroom because:
#1 They may wake up earlier than you and will wake you up.
#2 You may keep them up later than they should.

Birds should have 10-12 hours of undisturbed so as not to be over stimulated. They may consider breeding due to increased day light.

Excessive breeding can deplete their calcium levels and cause early death in females and egg binding.

Covering their cage with a bird cage cover will help prevent these problems or put their cage in another room.
#3 Parakeets, may not be a problem, but larger birds can be affected negatively by witnessing sex so they would not belong in a bedroom at all.
I hope this answers your questions.
