I agree with you about allowing them to choose their own temperature. In a big cage with a temperature gradient, high temps within a small area of the cage are fine, providing lower temps (low 70's) are available. Indigo keepers get into trouble (not you) when they keep the cage hot because eastern indigos are almost a sub-tropical species. I have heard horror stories where indigos rubbed their rostrals off trying to escape high temps. Frankly, I keep mine at room temp for much of the year.

Hey, I am just glad to see some action on this forum. Do you keep your indigos at a school? Nature center?
