Hey everyone! Now that it's almost summer the days have gotten very long, where I live it's already sunny at 6 AM and it gets dark at 9 PM.
My problem is that one of my budgies, Richie, wakes up every day at 6 AM and starts chirping. I don't have any problem with him chirping because I can easily fall back to sleep if he chirps, my problem is that after 30 minutes to 1 hour he starts screaming like if he's angry and he'll start jumping around the cage and makes a lot of noise.
I've also started a part time job now and I come home at midnight almost everyday and I'm very tired if I don't get enough sleep + i have other activites like college, gym, social life etc and sometimes after work I still go out and come home at around 3 AM.
I currently cover their cage on 3 sides with a white cotton blanket which isn't very thick and it's pretty transparent so the light easily shines through in the morning. I've tried totally covering it when they wake up but Richie just doesn't care, he'll continue chirping and later on he'll start screaming. I let them out one morning just to get rid of the noise but it didn't come to my mind that they'll poop all over my bed and all over me
I will try chaning their blanket with a more thicker and darker one tonight and see how that goes and I'm also gonna get a good sun blocker curtain in a week or two, hopefully that will work.
Do you guys have any other suggestions/advice on how I can make him less noisy in the morning? I wish he'd be like Johnny in the mornings
, Johnny wakes up with a grumpy face, falls back to sleep, then he eats his breakfast and after that he'll start preening himself or play on the swing quietly untill I get the blanket of the cage.
