Let’s Look At The Snuggle Up Bird Warmer

If you live in a cold climate it might be a great idea to look at getting either a Snuggle Up Bird Warmer or a Heated Bird Perch for your pet. You could also try a bird blanket, as my parrot loves hers.

Why Do You Need A Bird Warmer?

The first ones to use bird warmers were the farmers who used heat lamps in the poultry industry to keep the chicks warm. Eventually, exotic bird breeders began using lamps to provide emergency heat for their birds and to keep brooders warm for baby birds.

In the wild, birds snuggle up to each other to keep warm and cosy, but if you only have one bird in a cage, he will enjoy snuggling up to his bird warmer or blanket.

Using heat lamps, space heaters, and/or covers will help keep your birds healthy, happy and warm.

I am lucky enough to live in a very temperate climate, so my bird blanket and cover for the cage is enough, but for those of you who suffer from freezing winters you may want to invest in a Snuggle Up Bird Warmer for your pet or even your aviary.

How Do I Know My Bird Is Cold?

First of all make sure you have placed your bird in a room absent of the effects of air conditioning and cold drafts. If your birds still looks “fluffed-up” she may be telling you that she is either cold, stressed or ill.

Once you have ruled out illness, simply supply your bird with some additional warmth with either the use of a cage cover, a blanket or a Snuggle Up Bird Warmer.snuggle up bird warmer

If you purchase a bird warmer, make sure that you place it next to a perch in the cage to make for easier access by the bird.

The above Snuggle Up Bird Warmers are listed with the best (and most expensive) one at the top and the cheapest one at the bottom. If you are not sure your bird will enjoy the warmer, it is maybe better to try the cheaper one. However, there have been complaints that the cheaper ones don’t last, but if this does happen, all the products have a warrantee.

Have fun warming up those feathers!


  1. I live in a cold climate area, and its actually a big cost to cover the hydro for lamps. But having a warmer or a blanket would be very helpful. 

    I’m just curious to see how much hydro a warmer uses?

    Do you think I could lower the amount of hydro I use through lamps, if I had a warmer?

    1. The warmer is very light on electricity, as it only heats to just warmer than the birds temperature. I think a lamp would use a lot more, but is maybe a better option for a large aviary, as the warmer is designed for one or two birds.

  2. Parrot care must be at a high level. First of all, because they are very sensitive animals. Everything must be moderate with them, without great heat and cold, as well as without excessive feeding. These heaters are very practical. I would advise everyone who has parrots not to put them on the draft, it can be fatal for them.

  3. I never knew they had bird heaters. (warmers) When I first started reading your article I thought you were talking about a little blanket or something like that. I never had a bird as a pet so I don’t know much about them. I love birds, I just never had one as a pet. I didn’t even know they had to be in a warm environment. Thank you for this very informative article.


    1. Not too warm though, which is why these bird heaters are perfect as they don’t heat up too much. Birds hate a draft and the heater just gives them a sense of security on a cold winters night.

  4. Do you only need a bird warmer in colder areas? I live in florida but my home has A.C on all day. I can not stand the heat. I know I live in Florida yet I cant stand heat, go figure! But do you think I would need a warmer to keep them comfortable in an air conditioned home? Thanks

    1. I live in South Africa in a warm climate, so if I use mine once a year it is a lot. So no I don’t think you really need one if you don’t get extremely cold weather. A blanket over the cage should be sufficient.

  6. I purchased the K & H bird warmer because my bird, DaisyMae, a cockatiel that we had for 3 years was located by a single pane window in my living room in California. I thought purchasing the heater would be “just the thing”/ At first I thought it was great, but she began to have problems. She would run around her cage in the middle of the night with a wild look in her eyes, and her flying was “off”. Just prior to Christmas 2022 she actually flew thru our fireplace took kit and broke her neck, dying in my arms. About 2 wks. later we got another cockatiel, Twinkles, 3 mos. old. She was dead within a matter of 2 wks on Christmas Eve day. I had moved her away from the window, put a towel her cage, but the K & H Heater was still plugged in. I found her in the morning on the bottom of the cage on her tummy, trying to crawl to the door to get out. She had clear slime underneath her and bubbles in her mouth. We are having a necropsy performed to determine WHY she died. Just recently, Feb. 9th we purchased another Cockatiel, Sneaky Pete–3 mos. old. He is fine. The difference? I threw out the Heater and scrubbed down the cage for the 3rd time. From my experience I would NEVER by another heater. We have birds since I was a child, and never run into an issue like this. We are all heartbroken and would NEVER BUY ANOTHER HEATER for our bird.

    1. How terrible for you Carol and your poor little birds. I don’t blame you for not trying another heater. Did you ever find out if it was faulty?
      I have a friend in the UK who swears by hers, but here in South Africa, the climate is so moderate I don’t need one, and if it is cold I just move the birds to a warm room.
