    There is no direct sunlight in our conservatory, as like i said the roof panels are opalised so stops sunlight, and there are full blids all around the conservatoey, with open top windows. We leave the door through to the living room open all the time, and a ceiling fan. Also the conservaory doen not get used too much, so weather its a mess or not makes no odds lol.

    A heated avery will still be colder than a conservatory surely, as your out in the elements completely, and my conservatory has a radiator. Also you just said birds climatise?? Surely if the bird was used to being in the conservatoey it will climatise to the heat in there. Also the sun comes in and out outside making trhe temperature fluctuate the same as it does inside ?. There are full height blinds, and its got opal tinted roof with floor insulation (I built it).

    Just a quick one, the quote says heating is required 24/7. What about the parrots in avaries which are kept outside? Surely they will be freezing compared to a conservatory with the house doors open? Or am i just talking rubbish?? :?

    Ok cheers for all the help. Any more ideas withe all these questions..... 1) Would it be best to get 2 greys or one, considering the circustances? 2) Would 2 greys be less talkative than 1? 3) Would 2 greys be less affectionate with humans than 1? 4) Can i keep the cage in the conservatory wityh heating, and open windows and fan when hot? 5) How big of a cage would i need for 2 or 1 greys? 6) How much out of the cage time would a grey need? 7) any advice on much apreciated

    Ok so the general feeling is that 2 birs are better than one. The springer will not have access to the bird unless supervised by myself or partner. The conservatory has an opel roof, but does get hot so i think it will be a living room situation, as it will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The dog will be able to go near the cage when we are not about. Would that be a problem?

  8. Tyhankyou all for the kind welcome. I have posted a few questions in the hepl section, so any responses will be greatly welcomed. Dan
  9. Hi all, Ok well here is a few questions and my situation at present. I live with my partner, and are getting married next year. I have always wanted a congo african grey. Its only until now that we have the stability and security you need to be able to house one. Originally we wanted just one grey but through advice, i have been told a pair would be best as the parrot will be alone for around 5 to 7 hours in the week. We also have a springer spaniel dog. So here are the questions.... 1) Would it be best to get 2 greys or one, considering the circustances? 2) Would 2 greys be less talkative than 1? 3) Would 2 greys be less affectionate with humans than 1? 4) Can i keep the cage in the conservatory wityh heating, and open windows and fan when hot? 5) How big of a cage would i need for 2 or 1 greys? 6) How much out of the cage time would a grey need? 7) any advice on much apreciated Cheers Dan
