So what kind of response do the budgies have to too cold temps?
we had freezing temps last night and the fire didnt stay going, it was about 50 F in the house this morning, we usually keep it above 60. Mid day today when I finally got the house warm enough, I went to let the birds out, one of my guys, Vinnie, stayed inside. I went over to see what was going on with him and his head was wet and he looked like hell. I grabbed the heat lamp and put it on him and then put some ornacycline in the water (had some on hand from when Louie was sick a few months ago). he is drying out and rubbing his head on stuff but is slow and has a droopy tail. He was out flying around like kind of the world yesterday. Can one night of cold put him in that bad of shape? I know he didnt just take a bath because there was no water on the floor of the cage or on the walls or anything.
I am hoping that warming him up and a round of the Ornacycline will do the trick. any other suggestions?
ps... i just saw him throw up... maybe it isnt the cold but the cold brought it out? ugh going to repost this in the main forum for help.
