    My keets seem to be terrified of the dark. Just found out this morning when all of them were screaming and bouncing off the walls. I ran out there expecting to find a predator...instead I found that the light bulb blew and they were clinging to the ceiling and walls!

    They have a daytime light and a heat lamp at night. Guess they don't know what dark is:/

    I'll have to figure out a way to decrease the light a little at a time or something. They don't really need heat lamps every night now. Maybe a night light....
