NH temps and pet birds
« on: February 01, 2010, 09:48:57 pm »

Any pet bird owners here?  I'm a birder myself, however its been a while since I've owned one.  If I move, I'd like to keep a small-medium sized parrot (ie conure) but I'm afraid the temperature in NH could harm a bird whose regular habitat is the warm tropics.

I like to think of indoors and ourdoors as two separate universes.  The first universe can be climate-controlled to the point where an indoor tropical pet wouldn't even know what cold air feels like.  Moving it from a warm building to a warm car shouldn't be a problem, especially if you wrap the terrarium tank in a warm blanket.  That's only needed for very few varieties of animals, however, I don't think any of them are birds:

If I'm not mistaken, it is not the cold that kills tropical birds... It is the wind / draft coupled with cold. If you wrap a blanket around the cage while transporting outside, it should not be a problem.

We have a 20 year old Brown-throated Conure and a 20 year-old Indian Ringneck.  Along with our canary and finches and iguana and gecko), everyone does quite well...after all, one doesnt leave them outside in the snow all winter, right?
