    Default home fragrances and birds

    Don't use home fragrances if you have any pet birds because it harms the bird's lungs.

    Great post! I have a little bird, and I always use fragrance and let it totally dry of the alcohol and powerful scent.

    If I have to be near him, I wash my arms of any perfume. Ditto for home scent sprays. I only use scented candles in other rooms.

    Thank you for thinking of our feathered family members. (We had a member who had a parrot, but I have not seen her in some time.)

    Not too many people know about birds and scents. I didn't find out about this until about 5 years ago and I've had pet birds since I was a little kid. These days I have 2 Eclectus parrots.

    You probably know this but I thought I'd mention it here in case someone doesn't know:
    Overheating teflon can kill birds and is bad for humans as well.

    Vortex, you are so right about Teflon. I know of a person who burnt food in the pm and by the next morning her parrot was dead. It totally destroys their lungs. I have nine parrots and was sorry to see my Teflon go, but besides being expensive, I love my parrots way more then Teflon.
    On a side note, avocado is deadly as well.
