    Hi phyl,
    I have always gone by this rule of thumb. If you have to wear
    a sweatshirt in your home to be comfortable (warm) your birds
    are probably a little chilly. If you're comfortable in a
    tshirt of long sleeve shirt, then they are fine.
    Sometimes in the winter though if it's gonna be especially
    cold outside and door are opening often, I put a thick blanket
    around the backside of the cage to help hold in heat and avoid
    a draft on the birds (old comforters are great, especially if
    you ever loose your electricity) good luck, kristen
