New mother of cockatiel needs help

    About a three days ago, I became the mother of a cockatiel. The cockatiel was recently abused and turned a bit mean, which is one of the reasons I adopted him. However, every night, he has been up chirping loudly in his cage all night. Now, this does not bother me because I am up all night any ways. But I am worried that he is not getting enough sleep. Does any one know why he will not sleep? I cover his cage up and have the lights off and everything.

    Hi and congrats on getting a tiel.
    Birds usually sing all the time to get there owners attention or if they are bored.
    Mine will sing and sing until i let them out of there cage.
    With yourbird it could be just till he settles in to his new surroundings and you may find he will quieten down..
    If he can hear you while his cage is covered then he knows your still up and will sing for you..

    Sorry i could not be of more help

    If they are singing to get attention,then we have to also give attention...so they may be change.

    parakeetnames, Your wrong if a bird is singing just for attention you should never give it that attention, They soon learn how to train you to come when they want.

    On a night when the cage is covered you should NEVER go to them if they are singing or screaching on.

    I have raised Cockatiels from the day they have hatched and they do get used to you being there all the time, So never give into them...
