i keep kakarikis, budgies, parrots and canaries seperate in the house but also i keep kakaarikis, cockatiels and port lincolns in a aviary outdoors.
I live in the uk and have been told that in the winter they should have tublar heating to keep the chill off them.
Can anyone give me some advice?
I also keep my birds in a outdoors aviary. I don't use any heating and never have noticed any problem. Kakariki are pretty tough when it comes to cold and I mean damned cold. When the temperature is close to freezing Kakariki don't have an aversion to take a bath.
Like Peter says...there are some old posts on this, including temp extemes of the wild habitat of kakariki...yes they do live in snow conditions in the wild. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
Here in Rome in Winter the tempearture goes maximum to zero (but it is rare). I just put a blanket on the cage, even though i think that if temperature is not under zero they can leave well outside. of course they must have a nest box where to sleep.
