got a question for y'all.( yes i'm from the south )does anybody have fids who's schedule is sleep thru the day and up all night? i retired from my work 5 yrs ago. spent 36 of my 40 work years on night shift or as we call here in the south the graveyard shift. rotating shifts, odd hrs, ot,etc. 5 yrs later my body still takes it's working nights and i quit fighting it. don't need a schedule these days, rarely set an alarm other than dr appts.
my fids, qp,jenday conure, green cheek conure and 4 parakeets have adapted to my night shift schedule. wake up around 500 pm and go to bed around 700am with me. since retirement, i have been able to spend a lot of time with them and they are out of their cages the whole time when awake.they love it.
just wondering how many of y'all keep a schedule like that and do your fids " work the night shift " like mine. they sleep in the day with curtains and shades pulled down to darken the room. they must rest ok,always full of energy and mostly good behavior and attitude to me. my qp wakes up when i come down the hall around 500 pm demanding to be let out of his cage in half a new york minute. he waits until i have set down on the can and then squalls. i tell him your gonna have to wait,pal. i can't drop and run like you do. he'll squall and grump but he waits until i let him and his cohorts out.he's grumpy for a few minutes and then ok.
