Can lady gould finches survive in the cold?

What is the coldest temperatures that lady gould finches can live and be healthy in?


Tbanks!

I would not advise keeping them below 55 degrees F for very long and definitely not below 50 degrees. 65 degrees is tolerable, but not for the breeding period.

Thanks for visiting!!

If its not too much trouble include more great qualified information that could assist others in such great way.
Thank you. My book has everything I know to help Gouldians and it is soon coming out in paperback. The web site has been so wonderfully successful that I have not been able to keep up with all the questions and comments. I will keep trying. Very sorry to have disappointed some of my readers.

Outdoor acclimation
by: Anonymous

I live in Southern California's inland valley. The temperature here can drop to 30 degrees F. My birds have been acclimated during the warm summer months and have no problem with the winter temps. My outdoor flight gets northwest exposure and is on a windy side of the house. To temper the condition, I use plexi-glass covers for the sides that are exposed to the direction of the wind and of course the top is covered to keep them dry when it rains. In the warmer months the plexi-glass panels are removed. I have successfully bred my finches in these conditions several times. However, if an environment that is closest to their natural habitat is possible for you, I encourage you to mimic that environment. That is not a possibility for my birds. Good luck.
