Default A curious question..

Hi all

Having 2 very different birds now I was curious about how other peoples budgies position themselves for sleep.

We got "Mortimer" at the end of October as our first ever budgie. After careful research and help from some lovely people here it turns out he is a she and Morticia is her name lol.

Morticia is a happy girl she chirps constantly but has zero interest in toys and when she sleep she goes into the corner of her perch tucks her head round and she is fast asleep very quickly.

At the time we got our other budgie we got a male as we wanted them to live together - the quarantine period of 90 days will now last forever....although he will come in his own cage next to hers when the time has passed.

Mycroft loves toys - I mean loves them & he sleeps on his swing. When I cover him he just hops on and closes his eyes. Very sweet.

So after a ramble I would like to pose the question to you all. How/where does your bird sleep?!

My budgie sleeps on a perch with it's head in its wing (but still visible). Very cute.

My budgie reliably goes to the same swing every night to sleep. When he goes there it's his way of letting me know he very much wants the lights out, or if I turn the lights out he heads to that swing asap. I often find him there in the morning. At night I think he sleeps standing up.

During the day, when he naps, he never naps on that swing. He naps wherever he is at the moment (on his playgym, various perches in his cage) ... and he turns his head backwards in his wing and chirps himself to sleep. It's very funny what creatures of habit these little guys are.

I have four budgies and two of them prefer to sleep on swings, one on a branch and one on the side of the cage. They all seem to prefer one swing over others so whoever gets to it first is the king for the night I think
They all sleep with their head under wing. However, when I first got my budgie he didn't know how to do that so he was hunched over. Luckily, he soon learned to turn his head

I have 2 budgies and a canary.
The canary sleeps on highest perch, with her head tucked back and hidden so she appears as a fluffy lollipop.
During the day my two budgies nap anywhere. At night, they sleep on their single swings, sometimes the same swing, sometimes different but on the very top of them, the higher the better. I've never seen them with their heads tucked back - probably because of the ridiculous positions they choose.
