Question Keeping Budgies Warm During Winter

Hello,
(First off, I would like to say I'm sorry for bugging ya'll about the whole transportation thing, we have decided just to leave him at my mom's house)
But I have 1 problem.
It's cold here! How can I keep him warm? and what is the ideal temputure for him? I want to get him either a lamp (any specific brand/models?) or a space heater. I already have a space heater (A holmes ceramic heater, not sure of the model) but I don't know whether it is safe for him or not. Are ceramic heaters safe? It think it is a little bit of the older model, they updated it and I don't think they sell it anymore. But should I buy a new model? Will the ceramic heater be safe for him? And another idea I had was to put a heat pad under his cage. Will that help be safe? Will it warm up his cage?
-Thanks, Budgerigirl and Angel (who's cere actually seems to be turning bluer, maybe it's just me, but maybe Angel is a boy!)

I have used a couple different electric space heater's with my bird's, and have had no issues. Ceramic are probably the safest. I would try to keep the temp around 70 F ...

Hi, We are all glad that things are working out with Angel. Lady Gouldian finch
has reflector and ceramic heat only lamp that work very well for us. Things to look for are a ceramic receptical on the reflector for the lamp bulb to screw into. We use the lower rated lamp in the ceramic receptical for safety. You can probably find similar in pet store in the reptile department. Attach the reflector to wires on the cage or nearby chair or pole. Aim the lamp away from food and water and near your birds favorite perch to sleep on. Leave plenty of area in the rest of the cage that the bird can rest on a cooler perch . My husband took a tall dowel and placed it in an iron patio umbrella stand and attached various reflectors with different type bulbs. Including infrared, ceramic heat only, and a normal bird light with UVB/ UVA and D3. It also has a 6 way extension plug for heating pads or humidifier/ crock pot or other things we use. We use a heavy extension cord. To handle the current. So the pole and cages are portable can be moved where needed. We keep space blankets for emergencies when electricity / heat goes out to help hold in heat, In these situations we use smaller hospital cages wrapped in blanket and covered by space blanket. This is where a pet snuggle that you can heat in a microwave and it will last around 8 hours+- is handy. This can be good info as the current hurricane moves just of the East coast causing floods and utility outage. My little Sister A magnet school teacher who lives in the area expected to be land fall, had an emergency preparedness class and it included what to do for your pets as well as people. Everyone stay safe and warm. Jo Ann
