    I was thinking of putting a double wide flight cage (regular cage, not built for outdoors) on my screened in porch/lanai (has roof, located in FL) and bringing the birds out to that cage for supervised play time.

    Summer porch sitting

    In the summer, we love to sit on our porch and watch the neighbourhood go by. So I was delighted to learn that pekoe could join us (in her cage) and get a little fresh air and sunshine. So question: when do you start bringing your bird outside? What temperature should we wait for?
