Question Lowest tempurature for Vitamin D3?

I enjoy letting my young Budgie go outside for fresh air and sunshine. It is starting to get alittle cool here in Georgia.

What temperature should I refuse to take my bird outside? She normally stays outside for 15 or so minutes.

Thanks

Depending on where you are in Georgia and what your temperature ranges are there. You would not take her outside if you have a heater going where she is and the temperature outside is freezing not just cool or a strong wind blowing. Just use your own common sense and if it is nice outside and the sun is shining it should be ok to take her out for 10 minutes or so, just choose a warmer time of day. Even winter sun produces vitamin D but you would certainly not take her outside if it is snowing or there is a foot of snow on the ground.

Birds can cope with a wide range of temperatures if they have a chance to acclimatize to them. Where I used to live it was often over 40C in summer and below zero in winter. My birds were outside all year round but usually the temperature changes were gradual during the different seasons. I have recently moved and the temperatures here are a lot different. It can get very hot in summer but with very little humidity and it can also get extremely cold and windy in winter. Snow is very rare but winter weather goes for a lot longer where I am. It was very cool (5C) when I first arrived at the beginning of October and my birds were in a garage where they were out of the wind. They are out under the carport now and are really enjoying it. Just organizing to get my aviaries built where most of them are going. So far they have coped very well with the weather change.
