    Because there is only the two of them (correct?) and they are small birds to boot, I would offer them a heat lamp for awhile longer.

    i was hoping id get a reaction like "THEY'LL BE FINE! just give them lots of hay." haha only because there is no way to put a heat lamp in the house.... uh oh...

    Quote:Then giving them some warm hay to cuddle in would be the best option or perhaps a box to cuddle up in.
