He gets angry if i dont cover his cage

I have a Nanday Conure (7 yrs old) and I cover his cage at night b/c our apt get's drafty, but during the day, lately when i go to uncover it, he gets really angry at me and wants to be covered. I adopted him from a previous abusive owner and I cannot tell if he's come to not trust me after all (it's been about 5 weeks I have had him) or if he's just being bitchy. anyone else having issues like this? I would appreciate some opinions! I am first-time bird owner, but I have researched owning one for years and this is new to me. send an email to clgrunen@gmail.com

—Guest Lesley

Rarely

I have two parakeets that sleep in my room, and they can get very noisy sometimes, but I usually don't do anything, though if I'm trying to do something important like sleep or work, I cover the cage if they get loud.
