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.

So if you are already sharing the same bed with your pet you should consider stopping that now. Never take chances with this sort of stuff…
