Hey, from your location(s) I am thinking you might have some good firsthand information on the cold tolerance of this bird? I saw one (not for sale) a couple weeks ago and was deeply smitten, and am trying to figure out whether it's something I should make sure to leave space to house in the future
Do you know how cold they can handle? And do they need the entire aviary at that temperature or just a 'house' portion of it?
Thanks for any info,
Pat, who thinks this is absolutely the most beautiful bird in the whole world.
Can I ask what size pen you have the Impeyans in, I have read 200 sq ft (that's for a pair, I assume?) but what would you recommend?
Woo hoo! Oooo, my husband won't like that! (tough luck to him)
I will have to decide where the eventual Impeyan habitat will go and make sure not to build any structures or garden beds there in the next year or two, which is probably about what it will take to a) break the news to DH, b) get something built, c) save up to *afford* said birds, and d) *find* some in Canada. [Obviously they are here, as the one I saw was about an hour away, once I get to the point of actually being In The Market I will email the guy and ask if he has contacts
