Today is the first day of daylight saving time and little Kiwi seemed exhausted at 6:30, being as yesterday this was 7:30 his bed time. So, hoping that I made the right choice I kept him "up" for another 15 minutes and then covered him. I was hoping if I eased him into it by not covering him till a little later each night it would help. If anyone else observes this wonderful event, that messes with everyone's head, Kiwi's and mine the same, how long does it take for your fid to adjust?

Morgan usually goes to bed at 8:30 (it is 7:30 now). He is tired right now and I am trying to keep him up for awhile longer. It might not work though. He is screaming his little green head off right now. It usually takes him a couple of days to adjust.

I did the same thing... kept them up about 1/2 hour longer. I woke up at 4:30 and couldn't figure out why!

well... its 9pm here and Cricket is still raring to go. i got up early to go to a bird fair so i don't know if he would have woken up early or not but technically with it being "10:00pm" which is our bedtime, he's not looking tired yet!

Yep, Max's bedtime is usually 8:00, but I just put her to bed right now (7:30). Depending on how she does, I'll gradually extend it.

This is the second time we've had to deal with out of whack sleep times. She had issues a few weeks ago when it was getting dark out so early wacko.gif

Not really, Maj tells us when it's bed time, which means TURN OFF THAT DARN LIGHT ALREADY PEOPLE! laugh.gif Then he climbs up and snuggles down under his blanket. We can still watch TV and w/e he doesn't mind he just wants the light off. I did notice he was up much eariler though and wanted the lights out at 7pm VS 8-9pm last night.

Ive never had a prob. They get up when they want and go to bed when they want. They use their own clock mother nature gave them. They dont care what mine says.

It definitely affected Bogi. Last night, he wanted to go to bed at 8:30, which usually I have been putting him to bed at 9:30. Tonight I kept him up till 9, but he had had enough, flew off my shoulder to his cage letting me know it was time for bed. smile.gif

Mine go to bed when it gets dark and they get up when it gets light. So they dont know and dont care if i change the clock or not.

My Kiwi use to go to bed at 10. Now at 9 he gets in his bed and waits to be covered. I am allowed to stay up as long as the light is off and I am quiet. Gotta love em.

I came home on Friday after running errands after work and it was already dark...I had forgotten to leave his light on when I left for work. I was surprised when I didn't hear him calling for me when I opened the door, a cursory search of the cage and no Romeo. I started panicing but then he poked is little head out of his happy hut. I guess he figured since it was dark it was time to go to bed already! He is such a good boy. - Amy
