Birds cannot tolerate high temperatures. If putting them into an air conditioned environment there are several things to know and take care of.

First, keep them away from all vents either in ceiling or floor. Being too close to vents will cause a draft which will give them pneumonia, and they will die.If using window air conditioning, keep the birds in another room and keep the temperature set to no colder than about 76F.

I am suggesting you keep inside temperatures warmer than most people tend to do. Here in the NorthEast US, our temperatures in the summer can climb to 100F. Our home is air conditioned, and we keep it at a steady 76F which seems too hot for some people, and it is healthy for our birds and us. Our birds have their own room, and their air conditioning vent is closed off entirely. The next closest vent is in the kitchen which is very close to their room and so they stay the correct temperature without any fear of drafting.In winter, we open their room vent so they get adequate heat, and we keep house at a steady 72F.

Birds will die outside in extreme heat and for sure in direct sunlight. Birds die of heat stroke just like a human would. So keep them inside and follow the instructions above to keep them from chilling and getting sick.

I hope this helps you and thanks for writing,
