Subject:Sleep Deprived Birdy
Message:I have a 1 1/2 year old conure named Rusty.

Everynight I go to bed around 11:30 so that's when he goes to bed. In the morning we get up at 7:00. This is only 7 1/2 hours of sleep and I did a little research online and it said birds need around 10-12 hours. How do I make the transition?

His cage is in my room so he follows my sleep cycle. I have never tried covering his cage. I could try dimming the lights in the area of the room that he is in and putting a cover on his cage at 9:00 everynight but would he be able to fall alseep with me typing, talking occasionally, and getting ready for bed?

How should I start getting him to bed earlier? I have a feeling he would freak out if one night I just randomly put a cover on his cage at 9:00. Any advice? Thanks!
