I wasn't sure where to add this topic and I already read to be careful with draft from doors or windows but I have a question I am looking to buy a avarian lamp in the future but for the meantime if I put the cage close to a window on a sunny day like today 25 Celsius sunny and crack the window a bit open and put the cage on the side that the whole brow is not open..will this be bad or should I just leave it closed ? See pics of my window where I want to put Rocky for a couple hours to enjoy view and light
My second question is can I bring the cage outside while I'm there of course ..if so should I put the cage where there is shadow and even in the shadow is this ok even in a hot day? I want him to enjoy more light since I work from home 4 days a week and in my office where he is with me there is not a lot of sunlight from outside but I'm scare to bring him outside and he gets sick or have health issue since he is under 4 months . Any tips will be great I am a new owner for a month now and it is my 1st budgie and want to do the best thing for my Rocky ❤️
Rocky will probably enjoy it tremendously if you are able to bring his cage outside with you. Be sure the doors are all secured so there is no accidental escape and keep the cage under supervision.
You'll want to have at least 1/2 of the cage in the shade so if he gets to warm he can move out of the direct sunlight.
If he begins holding his wings out from his body, you can see if he'd enjoy being lightly misted or bring him back indoors for awhile so he doesn't overheat.
Thanks I knew about the window doesn't give them vitamin D so I think I will get that soluvite then ... Thanks for the tip on the light this will be good for winter time since here in Canada winter time sun up late and gone early so will be helpful to have the light. I was just paranoid with outside with bugs and stuff (momma bear lol) so I will give it a try this weekend if nice weather... I was confused with the draft thing but I guess it's more with the AC draft and cold air from doors if cold outside...thank you again
