Do your gliders keep you up at night?

They never keep us up. I have been woke up by a couple of them fighting and by the time I walk downstairs, they are done, no blood or bodies so back to bed and that is very rare. xxashleighannxx, if you have a Wodent Wheel, there is something you can do to quiet it down a bit and not be harmful. Every so often, I take the wheels apart to clean and lay the parts out on paper towel. after cleaning, put a little vegetable, sunflower, canola oil, etc. on the brass bearing surfaces and wipe off the excess when you reassemble the wheel. Should help, not toxic to the gliders either.

Mine woke me up by barking and till I went to them, they quiet down. They start barking again when I went back to my bed.

No, never. My little guy Zipper (I only have 1 I'll probally get him a friend soon) I know they are nocturnal but, my little Zipper isn't I even stayed awake all night to see if he was awake, he wasn't. He is only awake early in the morning, and the day. Is something wrong or is he just special?
Macie's cage is in my room and usually she wakes me up but on nights I'm really tiers I ask her to be quiet (really tired like barley holding on to my sanity tired) and I definitely notice a difference in the amo
unt of noise she makes sooooooo cute!!!!!! She actually ends up waking my mom up more than me and shes down the hall

I keep them in my bedroom, and they are very loud! Vinnie's new thing is if I turn the space heater in my room off he barks until I turn it back on even if it feels like 100 degrees in there! (the heater is nowhere near the cage and is not pointed towards the cage either).
Honestly I wouldn't feel comfortable keeping them in another room because they are master escapees and I like knowing if they get out they will most likely wake me up, or at least be contained in my 90% glider-safe room.
I think their barking is adorable, even at 3am! And hearing all their little chittering throughout the night. They are my babies and being awake is worth it to see them awake and get to know them
