Keeping your Quaker parrot or any other bird cool in the warm months of spring and summer is vitally important. Birds can become overheated rather quickly and may even have a heatstroke. You can prevent this from happening to your bird by keeping his cage in a cool part of your home away from windows that attract heat. Make sure he’s not in a draft from an A/C vent or fan as it will be too cool. You can also keep your bird’s body temperature regulated by keeping his featherless areas under his wings clean and free of dirt. This is where the bird naturally cools himself and if he’s covered in dirt he’ll have a hard time. You veterinarian Moorpark, CA can tell you that birds tend to avoid warm water so make sure you keep your bird’s water bowl refreshed with cool water throughout the day. Learn more here.
