Welcome to the forum. I believe it has been pretty warm in your half of the world recently. Warm enough to have the birds outside almost all the time like we do here in Oz.

Welcome to the forum.

I would love to see some photos of your setup one day. It's so interesting seeing how European breeders incorporate cold-weather protection into their aviary designs.

It was only 5 - 19 degrees here yesterday and scheduled to be 9 - 20 today, so not too big a temperature difference at the moment. But you can keep your winters, as I tell my sister who lives in Outer Alton. (near Wimbledon)
