So right now there is a thunderstorm going on and my budgies are terrified of them, flashes of lighting scare them and cause night frights. The only way to fix this is to turn the lights on so they can't see the Lightning. I plan on getting lightning proof curtains but until then is it okay to keep the light on and have them covered enough that they get light but not too much? The storms supposed to go through the night so I am concerned whether my budgies will be able to sleep with light. I don't want them to not sleep but it's for their safety that the light is on. I've tried the thickest blankets I have to cover their cage but the lighting still goes through.nthe light seems to be the only thing that keeps them calm.
