How cold is to cold?

Its been nice and cool here in the city at night and I love it. But I want to make sure chi chi is warm enough, He has a cozy corner and a thermo perch and I have been covering the cage with a blanket. Right now its 63f.
Now I know birds can handle pretty low temps, but I don't want a sick bird.
At one school i worked at in Wood haven queens they had amazon parrots that lived in the front, I would see them in the afternoon in the trees and they were really loud, They were green bodied and had a red stripe above their beak. and there were also like 40 of a different species that were smaller and green and i remember seeing them all lined up under the train trestle sleeping in the winter, rain,snow etc. and it didn't seem to bother them. Although Im sure they had a number of diseases

Re: How cold is to cold?

I would say too cold is when he starts to puff up, there isnt a set min temp because all birds are different. If he looks active and happy and isnt puffed up then he is probably fine.

Re: How cold is to cold?

Isn't this weather crazy?? I swear it seems every other day for the past month I switch back and forth between the heat being on and the air being on!

Re: How cold is to cold?

here is a page about the parrots: BrooklynParrots.com: A Web Site About the Wild Parrots of Brooklyn: New Photos of Wild Queens NY Parrots in Winter
The ones at the school were not conures they were bigger, they didnt have red faces just a red strip above the beak and i know they were a type of amazon.
I like the weather like this.
