You should never ever sleep with your birds in the same bed for safety concerns. Birds have very soft and fragile bodies that can get crushed even with the slightest of pressure. If you accidentally move over your little pet, it’s all over.
let’s take a deeper look at this topic…
What does it mean when your bird sleeps on you?
Birds love spending time with their fellow humans. With time they will consider you a part of their flock. If your bird remains most of the time outside its cage and even sleeps with you, then it is a sign that the bird trusts you immensely.
All animals are most vulnerable when they are asleep. so think about it, they are choosing to sleep alongside you, which means they trust you blindly and have no vulnerability about their safety.
Is it okay for my bird to sleep with me?
“My bird loves me so much and won’t stop sleeping without me”-What to do?
Other points to remember
- You will have no idea what the bird does outside the cage while you are asleep. The bird may start chewing on electrical wires or may try flying in the dark and hit the fan or the wall and injure itself badly.
- Birds are often known to have night frights. Keeping in the safe boundaries of a cage covered with a cage cover gives them that extra bracket of safety that prevents them from having frights in the middle of the night due to some kind of sudden sound or light.
But sleeping in an open room without any private space doesn’t give them that extra layer of safety.
