Budgies in the Bedroom

Last Updated on by Mitch Rezman

 Hi…I was just reading some information on your website about where to place a birdcage. We Have a birdcage 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 overstimulated. They may consider breeding due to increased daylight.

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

Covering their cage with a birdcage 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.
