Quaker parrot bedtime
My Quaker parrot, Rocky, has always been good about going to bed. When it's bedtime she will chirp "go sleep, go sleep" over and over until I cover her and I wouldn't hear a peep the rest of the night.
Lately, I have had to put a padlock on the cage because she started opening the door after she was covered and I don't want her to get out while I'm sleeping. Now she chirps constantly while she's down for the night. It's a "question" chirp like she's wondering what I'm doing or if I'm still home. I reassure her that I am still there and tell her it's bedtime and to go to sleep. I tried putting her to bed at a later time but she keeps saying " go sleep, go sleep" and won't stop until I cover her. Should I just ignore her chirping? It's never a "distress" chirp so I know she's okay in there and I don't uncover the cage once she's supposed to be sleeping.
