Hi all,
My maiden post here.
Hope to connect with budgies lovers here :)

I bought a pair of 4 weeks old budgie two days ago n I noticed at night they don't huddle to sleep.
They r about 3cm apart standing on the perch.
Is this unusual or should they be closely huddled together?

Night temperature at my area is around 29 to 30 degree Celsius.
So I covered 90% of cage with a piece of thin cloth to keep it dark n warm. 10% for ventilation.
Is this advisable?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the fourm. The birds are much too young to have been removed from the parents, are you hand feeding them or are they eating on their own and if so what are you giving them? 29- 30 degrees is pretty warm, translates to about 86 degrees F which I consider hot. You can cover the cage at night but at 30 degrees C you do not need to do it for warmth, more to keep any light out and to help them feel more secure. They do not have to huddle together, they will sleep wherever they are comfortable doing so. Can you post a picture of them?
