Default Cant stand the hyper time!

Hi all

I love my budgies but their hyper time is ridiculous, they r so loud and the noise goes right through me. They don't even quieten when I put a cover on the cage. I am doing a course right now and sometimes need quiet time to think but it getting to the point now where im having to go upstairs just to get some quiet time.

Help

I see their "hyper time" as a positive thing, meaning they are happy and healthy. I love their vigorous singing and being playful/active, because that's their own way of showing me all is well in their world and that in return makes me happy too.

All birds will sing, the same goes for pet birds, if you can't handle the singing and playfulness, then a bird may not be the right pet for you.
Forcing them to not sing not only is a very difficult task to accomplish but also would seriously have a negative impact on the bird's very own mental health.

My two when they get going are very loud! I suffer from migraines, which I can get weekly ,so it can go right through me but when I feel ill I just move out of their space and go in my room and close the door. This was one thing I knew I would have to do when I did get a bad head and I'm happy to move away from them rather than move them from their spot. Tis a compromise when picking a bird as they love singing and cannot really be trained to be quiet when you need it.

Haha, the noise made by 2 budgies is nothing compared to my flock of 14, 8 budgies and 6 loud lovebirds!
I embrace the noise from their happy and excited singing and wouldn't have it any other way!

You're welcome! You can also use earplugs to muffle the noise and be more easily concentrated on your studies.

I love it too, to the extent if they drown out a TV programme I am watching I put on the subtitles. If I have company I will sometimes wheel them into another room, which they treat as one huge adventure! (Can still hear them though!!)

I have to admit, sometimes I'd love to scream during their hype time, specially if it lasts longer than half an our. I usually put on headphones during it because it's SO LOUD. It's amazing how much noise two tiny birds can make. You can't hear your own talking during this phase. I do love it when they are chirping away at a normal noise level tough. So cute~

So my suggestion is headphones or earplugs. I have big headphones so even if I don't listen to anything they work as soft earplugs and I can still hear.

Haha, I totally understand. Agree that just give them space until they quiet down! Mallorn chirps like crazy during movies and shows, especially loud-action ones and I just deal with it The more I tell her, the happier she is to argue.
But her tweeting and squawking makes me happy because I know that she's happy!
