How Do I Keep My Bird Cage Warm In The Winter?

Karen Phillips asks

I have a 28-year old B & G (blue and gold macaw).

We have had her for 18 years.

She has been bare-chested most of her life.

Her big perch is in the family room, which is quite large with a cathedral ceiling.

It is hard to keep her warm.

I have used an older space heater.


When I purchased it I had contacted the manufacturer (Lasko) to make sure it had no coatings on it.


It has gone kaput, and I need to get something else.


After reading numerous sites, I would not buy one of these again.


I understand that oil-filled heaters are the safest around birds.


Is there anything else you could recommend?


I looked on your website and saw you have a heat lamp that doesn’t put out the light.


I would like that option but not sure how I could place it above her perch as it is quite tall.

​We have several oil-filled heaters – they are efficient and we always cover the heater with the nite time cover providing a “circle of warmth”.

​It’s best to place the units on one end of the birdcage so the bird has a choice to move away from the heat source.

​Remember if you are comfortable, your bird is comfortable, if you are cold so is your bird. 

​We keep thermometers next to (opposite of the heater) birdcage for easy temperature monitoring.
