It is suggested that you keep birds out of breezes and drafts. Mainly because it interferes with their ability to lock their feathers together and thus their ability to self regulate their temperature.

Wow great explanation!
I'm sure I have some drafts in my house, in Vegas when it's 100+ outside the air is on 24/7.
I do angle the vents away from the cages, and if I have a fan on I make sure it's pointed in the opposite direction. I do not use celing fans because of the danger with flighted birds.

I do not use fans, but I do let Huey outside in is cage on warm days. sometimes there is a breeze and I think he actually likes it.

We had Levi in his small cage at the park on Saturday.. 30 degrees C and a light breeze. Every time I felt a gust coming on I would look at him like oh no! But he would just fluff up and chirp and yeah.. I think he likes it!

But again I think that's different from a cold draft in a house.

Hello!
Do not create a draft on a bird. Fans can blow away from a bird as long as the wind does not circulate and come back and create a wind eddy (current). It makes a bird use up too much energy and they will compensate by overheating.
Cold air from an A/C vent is the worst. It dampens the lungs way too much.
