yes i no i have only had charlie since friday, but he wont come out of his bed untill the room is quite and dark,, :( ,,
i came down stairs at 3oclock this morning, came into romm (didnt put any lights on) and he ran into the corner of his cage hiding,, :( ,
i spoke to him and then went back to bed,
i have had him out of his cage at t.time but he just wants to curl up and sleep, :(
he is only 8 weeks old and i no babys need there sleep, but is there anything else i can do to encourage him out of his bed?? or am i doing the right thing and just have to persevere??

just had a thought!!!! charlies bed is a wooden hut with a fleecy blanket in it so he is constantly in the dark!!!
maybe i should use something diffrent for his bed so he does get to see daylight??(if you no what i mean)

what does anyone recomend?? :?

i have taken his house out of his room and he has a fleecy blanket, since doing that he has been a lot better and will now come out of his bed, i get him out of his cage later on in the evening and he seems to be doing ok,, :D
he has a little huff and puff but hes not putting his quills up as much and i can stroke him without being spiked,, :D
yes charlie can still snuggle into his fleecy blanket, this morning i coulent find him as he had wrapped himself up in his blanket so much,, :lol:
i hav =e been getting charlie out on an evening and he is brilliant now, huffs and puffs a little but hes not putting his quills up, so to me thats seems a good sign,, :D
