Heat Stroke In Budgies.

6 posts in this topic

Hi Guys. Do budgies get heat stroke.

My guys were sitting with their wings out today in the 40+C temps and blast furnace wind today.

 

I brought the ones outside into the air con. 28 was much better.

Everything living can suffer because of the heat. I kept misting mine yesterday, and it was greatly appreciated by them.

 

My youngest dog Tess had a fit in the heat yesterday. Terrifying to watch. I cooled her after, but she was inside and all when it happened.

 

Everything can be affected. Just do the best you can, and it sound like you did.

I dont disturb my birds at all on the hot days. I make sure they have plenty of cool water, including water with iceblock so the water doesnt get hot during the day and I leave them alone. They go to ground and get more lively once the day cools.

On the really hot days if there if is no breeze I put the fan on to oscillate in front of the aviaries, and they really appreciate it. If its not too humid I mist them with water. And of course ensure fresh cool water. Some of my budgies like to play in a dish of water or budgie bath as well.
