I was strongly consider returning this because it barely gets warm. I'm sure this is intentional to avoid risk of burns or overheating birds, but I was hoping it would provide a bit more warmth. My bird started perching next to it a few days in, so I'll keep it for him. I do appreciate that it is designed to be left plugged in, so he can at least have some extra warmth when it's cold and I can't leave his space heater running. I'd recommend it if you live in a cold climate and can't keep the house consistently at 65 or 70 degrees, but if your house is already at an appropriate temperature it doesn't really seem worth the cost to me.
We purchased this hoping it would help our elderly, arthritic bird feel better. He seemed to like it.
This has worked out so well for our old cockatiel. She is picky about what is allowed in/adjacent to her cage, but she did accept this and it has been a slow process of her getting closer and closer to it. She even snuggles up against it sometimes while she's on her perch now. We are very happy to have this for her. Thank you!
I had birds 20+ years ago and never knew about these. My new parakeet absolutely loves this and it is the perfect size for him without being obnoxious. I am going to order a second one for his travel cage so he is never without it! Great product!
My parrot took a few days to discover the joy of this product, but once he did it became his favorite hangout spot! He was able to strip the plastic cover off a bit of the cord, but it has wire wrapped underneath so all was good. Great resource for your bird if you have air conditioning or drafty windows!
My parakeets are only caged at night, and using multiple K&H warmers gently and effectively kept their cage at the perfect temperature when covered and the house heat was lowered. Now that they are in a larger cage I replaced the smaller units with the larger thinking more surface area would give off a bit more warmth, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'll have to add a few more to work as well as before. They aren't meant to heat an entire cage, just provide a slightly warmer place to snuggle, but my parakeets never sit near them even if the ambient temperature is cooler than they are used to. Whether using one or several they are safe and effective.
We purchased for my African grey parrot and she loves it!
I bought this hoping to keep my birds mildly warm since we have the air conditioning running, and don’t want to freeze them. I figured it would also be great during the winter when it gets cold. We live in the north right now sometimes get snow. I set it up not hard to do. I can’t feel barely anything coming from it at all no warmth. I’ve touched it numerous times and still nothing feels barely warm like a lukewarm touch. That’s not anything to get them warm. If that’s all the heat it can produce I’m sad that I pad this price for the product.
Good size for him, but doesnt get that warm to make a difference.
