Hi there,

The easiest AND most effective is to buy heated blankets. I use single size for roost. The roost that I use in these particular pens are 6 inches across...I fold the blanket in half and then wrap it around the roost tightly...Then I duck tape just the edges..Then I wrap an old sheet around that as you really don't want the blanket itself getting all dirty..Duck tape that down and you are all set...This is cheaper and more effective than heated water tape that is sold.......As most of that is on a thermostat..This you can control..And have constant heat if you want..Which if you have pure Javas in any of the sub species you will need constant heat on them..,,,depending on where you live. This works great (provided of course the bird will actually roost)---I had some Javas last winter that I found out too late were not roosting..For some reason many of my birds do not roost when it is really cold but perfer the nice bedded ground..A hugh problem with javas..A heated building would work much better but so far I just do not have one......Julie
