can a parrot stand and sleep?

Dear Sirs/ ladies, i have a small carrier for my monk parrots when she sleeps at night with food and drink. I want to ask if it is ok for her to stand whole night and sleep? thank you
in the day time, she is in another large cage or free in my house.


Hi Rebekah,

Adult parrots sleep while standing. Often they lift one foot and will change which foot they stand on throughout the night.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
