How Do Budgies Sleep?
Budgies, also known as parakeets, are cute little birds often kept as pets. They are social birds who love being around humans and other budgies, but how do budgies sleep?
Budgies are laid-back creatures and are quite content to sit still for hours with their eyes closed. But that doesn’t mean they’re asleep! To actually sleep, budgies will snuggle on a branch, twig, or even in their food dish and keep their beaks tucked in.
Budgies need 8-10 hours of sleep each night to stay healthy. If a budgie isn’t getting enough sleep, it will be grumpy and lethargic. To ensure your budgie gets the right amount of sleep, provide it with a dark, quiet place to rest.
To ensure your budgie is getting a good night’s sleep, here are a few additional tips:
- Keep the cage covered: Make sure the cage is covered during nighttime, dark, and quiet hours to encourage your budgie to rest.
- Provide hideways: Budgies love hiding in little caves, so provide some fun hiding places in the cage.
- Avoid loud music: Loud music can interrupt your budgie’s sleep, so stick to more calming sounds during their sleeping hours.
- Don’t wake them up: If your budgie is sleeping, leave it be. It’s natural for budgies to take frequent naps throughout the day.
By following these tips, you can make sure your budgie is getting the sleep they need to stay healthy and happy.
