Hi Jesse,

We've used heated gel packs wrapped in a towel for our sick birds before, along with the heat lamp. And if the weather conditions were really cold, we would turn the central heat on for them (we live in sw Florida). Some people keep their buttons outside, where they are exposed to cold and even snow. Of course, those birds are acclimated to that type of weather. During our recent cold snap, our house has gotten to 55 degrees, and the birds seem to be faring quite well, even without the heat on. They can withstand colder temperatures, so 68 is well within that range. It seems like Kiwi is well taken care of!
