Default Night fright bless

I tend to pop the cove other the birds about 9.30 or 10 at latest and So tonight I'm sitting here on this and other forums watching tv ( not loud) and all of sudden I witness my babies first night fright. No loud noises or anything just sudden flapping.

So glad I was here to reasure them and calm them down. They are ok now.

My previous birds only got this when younger, do they grow out of it?

Poor babies

Ps they have a night light for this when we go to bed.

Budgies can have night frights at any age.
Sometimes a sound, shadow or even an insect may set them off.
I'm glad you have a night-light for them.

I cover all my birds' cages top and three sides and 1/3 of the way down the front and leave a night light on for them every night.

I'm glad you were there to help Lulu and Max calm down and feel safe again.

A nightlight is such a great idea! Do your birds get night fright anymore with the light?

My last pair only Bobby had frights and I do think the nightlight helped.

This is the first time I seen it with these babies, I don't tend to cover the front of the cage too much, just a small pull of the lightweight black cotton cover at the front so it's back sides mainly as the nightlight is at the front.
Bless I suffer from bad dreams occasionly so I do understand when something freaks you out at night.
I'm glad I was there tonight for them

Sharon, I had a period of time where one of mine was getting spooked fairly often at night. A night light did help in the calming down, but he would still have them and on occasions, he set off the others when he flapped around in fright.

The benefits of the night light is that when the fright happens, they will be able to see where they are, go to an area of the cage they feel safe and calm down. Because they have light on, they can see they are safe and it will help calm them down.
Many times when mine had one I would turn a lamp on if the night light was already on and let them calm down when they were ready (mine aren't tame, so I would talk to the, but I couldn't calm them down besides from that).

They got over it and they haven't had a fright for a while now.
Best of luck with your babies.

Thank you for this. I do try to get them to sleep a bit early than we go to bed, which is difficult as they are in our living room, but your so right. I also if up dead early ( fights to uk) try not to wake them, plus these Guys are hand trained yet ( never really managed it with other birds till my last one and she was 10 before she let me touch her properly )
They are settling but they are still young so it's just making sure they feel safe.

Thank you for the advice guys xx

Mine don't seem to have night frights, but they do have night squabbles over sleeping spots.
I found that a night light does help a lot. Another thing I do is rather than abruptly turning off the lights, is dim them or turn off the brightest light and leave a lower powered one on for a while and let them get use to the idea that it's about to bet bed time. Following that, I cover them on top and 3 sides like FaeryBee mentioned, and they usually go to their favorite sleeping perches or swings. When they are settled in I will turn off the lower light, and keep a night light on for them.
Seems kinda of excessive now that I have typed it all out but it seems to help a lot.

Hope this helps.
