    Hi Allen,

    We also have 2 B&Gs, along with an M2, CAG and Green Cheek
    Conures.

    We keep our temperature around 70, but does sometime fall
    below to 68 on chillier nights. We are located in Illinois.

    What we have done was invest in an Electric Oil-Filled
    Portable Radiator Heater on rollers that can be situated in
    different areas of the room where needed. This works very
    well for us, and it seems to very efficient to use. It has 3
    temperature settings.

    Before investing in this type of heater, I did my homework
    and have seen on other sites that others are using this
    heater also and are very pleased with it.

    p.s. my dogs love it too.

    Take care, Rick
