I was given a Cockatiel by a neighbor (long story but it was more a rescue from abuse by them and that's for another thread) and I know next to nothing about them. Even though I have only had him for about a week now I have grown to love him immensely. Anyway, before I get too off topic, I have a tendency to ramble on horribly at times.
I want to know what is the best room temperature for him. I know they are tropical birds and am guessing they like it hot (who doesn't?) however I am worried about him getting cold as I have the heat down at night and am worried that he might go into shock if it gets too cold for him. What is the lowest he can handle without me going into bankruptcy due to the electric bill. I live on Vancouver Island and this time of year it can drop to 54f-50f sometimes, before I get up in the morning. Then I worry about him dying or getting sick because of it.
Thanks, and have a great day
