    Hello, it's been a LONG LONG time since I've been on the
    board, but I have a general question and cannot seem to
    find much help on the web or in my bird books.

    My Green Cheek Conure, Skittailz, is now about 5 years
    old. We live in Northern Florida and the weather is
    starting to get really nice. Skittailz is in a large cage
    (the size used for an African Grey). I'd like to put her
    outside on our covered patio (it's 10 feet by 8 feet). She
    would not be subject to the sun or any harsh elements like
    rain, etc...she would be fully covred as our roof line
    extends about 10 feet further and then we have a deck
    extension where we BBQ, have our jacuzzi, etc. I just
    thought maybe she'd like to be outside whre she can smell
    the fresh air, talk with the other birds and chat with the
    golfers as they stroll by.

    I know parrots live outside in the wild, but Skittailz has
    been indoors most of her life and I was curious if it
    would be hard on her to transition to being an outside
    bird. We do get some cold temperatures, maybe 5 - 10 days
    a year where it will drop below 32 degrees. She has a
    little tent that she sleeps in to stay warm and I have a
    large cage cover.

    Thanks in advanced!
