Hi

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?

thanks

Hi Cazza,

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.

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.
