Cage Covers for Bird Warmth?

Cozzzy 32 Inch x 21 Inch Parrot Cage Cover for Flat Top 13221 cages - 3221FT - Black
 
 
Does this cover do anything to keep birds warm? Our house is toasty during the day due to solar gain but gets very cool/cold at night. Will this cover help to keep my 5 month old Lovebird warm at night? I’m worried about the impending cold!

Dear Karen
 
I understand as I like a cool temperature at night to sleep myself, and also worried about my own birds comfort at night. Cage covers are fabric coverings only. They are made to fit a cage better than a sheet or a light blanket.
 
They help with maintaining a more regulated sleep pattern and help to give a skittish bird privacy at night that might be frightened by passers by. They help with drafts. They do not produce heat nor contain materials with insulating properties as they must be a safe fabric that can be able to be nibbled on without harming the bird if the bird so choose to.
 
As so may birds need to be put to bed early to avoid hormonal issues from lack of quality sleep they are very useful for that as well.
 
I would recommend a thermo perch in a size small so your bird will have a heat source when it wants it. They are marvelous and my own parrot had 3 in various cages and he truly enjoyed them.
 
You can find them at this listing. http://goo.gl/UqeAS

I hope this helps.
