cockatiels in the cold.
Advice needed. My tiels are out all year, so aclimatised.
We are having a cold snap here but it has been in the low teens. In deg C
Tonight it is -4. So I worry their not acclimatised at the moment.
We are forecast a blizzard for Fri into Sat.
So I am going to fill their food with more nice fatty sunflower seeds. And check their water obviously.
I had one lose a claw a few years back due to it freezing to a perch.
At what Temp do I bring them in?
They have an indoor area where they are fed.
I expect they can withstand -8 deg C at night as long as it warms up in the day.
The worst we had was 3 days of snow and -2 temp daytime.
I will keep my eyes open and maybe shut them in as all of them huddled together should keep it warmer?
What would your advice be?
When to bring them in the house?
