Winter warmth

Winters vary quite a lot across Australia.

Budgies in the wild would have a temperature range of -5 to -15C rising to 30 to 40C

Many aviaries are outside with temperature of -5C to 15C in winter.

Some owners do bring birds inside.

If you think your birds are suffering from cold try bringing the inside and cover their cage with a towel when it gets dark, taking it off when you get up in the morning.

2 reasons why this is done 1 is to keep the birds warm and the other is to keep them quiet at night

Hi. I didn't know that the winter in Australia is so cold. In Japan the most of owners use an air-conditioner for pet parrots and keep around 25C which means it's always warm all through the year. Is that the reason my budgies always get in the mating mode???
