    For quite a long time, budgies have been bred, inbred,
    crossbred and linebred and the eventual results concerning
    them is that sadly, their natural resistance to outside
    temperatures and environments have been drastically
    compromised. They're also very likely to pick up airborne
    bacteria in the summer which their internal systems can no
    longer fight off. It would be best that you keep the budgies
    indoors year round but near a draft free window so that they
    can see what's going on------Dave
