Subject: Heating Pad?

Hello all,
I have an adult male button quail named Kiwi. He's about a year and a half old and he has a cage to himself. We live in a desert region so winter temperatures rarely go below freezing. Inside temperatures never go below 68 F. At night he sleeps cozy in a tent with a blanket and I have never found him shivering, but I think a little source of heat may make nights more pleasant for him.

Does anybody have opinions or suggestions for this? I could set up the heat lamp that kept him warm as a chick though I'd prefer not to illuminate the house at night. I've heard of low-grade heating pads (and heated plush toys) for pets though I wouldn't want to try this on such a small bird without first consulting with expert Buttoneers.

Input is appreciated!
