Instead of sleeping on one of her perches, she climbs into the very top right corner of the cage, clings onto the bars, fluffs herself up and sleeps there instead.
Anyone know if there's a particular reason she might be doing this? She's an otherwise healthy, happy bird.

You have any other pets? Cat's or Dog's?

I have several budgies, as well as a macaw named Sid.

I don't like mammals... Emotion: wink

If it weren't for mammals, you wouldn't exist.

I wouldn't keep a great ape as a pet either... Emotion: wink

my parrot sleeps in a Happy Hut at the top of the cage in the corner. She loves it in there. They cost under ten dollars, maybe you could buy one and see if your budgie likes it.

According to a handout on bird behavior I found in my avian vet's office, many small parrots do that routinely. My parrotlet will sometimes sleep on the side of the cage, clinging to the bars, and she has one foot that's missing 3 toes!

We have about a dozen budgies in an aviary in the garden and they all sleep that way,,,clinging to the side of the cage..looks very uncomfortable but I suppose if it was then they wouldn't do it !!!

Birds have tendons in their feet which lock down and it is completely no effort for them to cling like that.
