They get noisy in late afternoon

    It seems as though they have their noisy times just like babies. They're up there cheeping really loud, I went in there and they calmed right down. They must be lonely! [​IMG] It's awful hot in that room right now, should I turn off their light for a bit? They're not running from it and huddled away from it or anything, but it's got to be 92 up there without the lamp. Other than a little pasty butt on two barred rocks (I cleaned them up with olive oil, boy, one of them was really hard!) they seem content.

    It might be the heat making them peep. I figured out that I needed to keep the drapes pulled in their room otherwise the afternoon sun would really heat them up. If they're hot, go ahead and turn the light off for a little while until it cools down.

    I agree with Christine, probably the heat.
