Question by ProudtoloveMJJ4ever: What is the best temperature for an African Grey?
Are African Greys sensitive to temperature change? What is the best temperature for them? Any information on this is appreciated. Thank you.

They are very resiliemt. My friend has an African Grey and lives in Wales. For a few years he kept it indoors in a cage but when he was let out, the bird was VERY destructive, so my friend built an aviary outdoors in and got another parrot to keep the AG company. The aviary has three sides open to the elements and is partially roofed. They have a box where they can shelter but rarely use it, preferring ALL KINDS of weather, from sunshine to storms to snow.
Personally I think it’s a bit too chilly for the birds to be outdoors in mid-winter but both of them have survived several cold and wet winters so far and are rarely seen shivering.
