I recently moved and even though the apartment where I moved seems reasonably comfortable he gets kind of puffy at times which I know can be a sign of being chilly. I know that even though I'm comfortable here it is clearly different for a bird that only weighs an ounce. I do have the K&H Bird Thermo Perch that I guess I bought for a Budgie that I had years ago way before Willie. I recently found it in storage and never opened it. I don't have a great memory.
I opened it plugged it in and put it in his cage. I touched it to find that it is barely even room temperature and I'm wondering if it's broken but he's afraid of it anyway so I guess it doesn't matter. I gave him a small tent for warmth that's been in his cage for a year but he won't go in it and I'm not too much of a fan of heat lamps.
So what else can I do to provide warmth for him in his cage? Does anyone else have that heated perch for their birds? I would like to know if they like it.
He is also due for a vet visit soon!
