Allowing a parrot in a high ventilated part of my room AFTER burning incense, scents?

Obviously burning anything near the bird directly and in the same room is very harmful to the birds because of the carbon going directly in their lungs... HOWEVER when the "smoke settles", the cage is put back in a high place near an open window, and its been an hour since the burning and only a slight smell is around you, and you place the cage back in your room, is that ok? Would that still be very dangerous to the bird or the effect negligible?

Re: Allowing a parrot in a high ventilated part of my room AFTER burning incense, sce

Well, some will say that sounds fine, but I (th self-acknowledged Queen f Paranoia) wouldn't risk it. I've just heard too many horrible tales of awful respiratory failure and death... if not by one or a few exposures, to multiple/regular exposure. In my thinking, no good smell is worth the death of a bird.

How about natural good smells? Citrus peels... cloves... rose water... lavender... stuff like that?

I'm glad you're asking.

The smoke may have thinned - the very fine ashes are still floating everywhere (even if you do not smell anyhting at all).
so NO

(I was an avid -only natural- incenseburner, but stopped completely when I went back to keeping birds. And yes I miss 'claiming' my personal space and calming myself that way still, but that is the choice you make: wellfare of other living beings first. If I want to smell something familiar I can step inside a shop or even some churches.)

It should be fine -- I burn incense occasionally and my birds don't even seem to notice it nor does it seem to affect them at all. You can open a window if you want to get some more fresh air flowing into the room.

Re: Allowing a parrot in a high ventilated part of my room AFTER burning incense, sce

Like I said, I used to burn it for comfort- ventilate the ##### out of my room, vacuumclean regularly and everything, but still I would find an extremely fine powder build-up on/ behind (studie)books etc.. quite unlike any 'normal' dust.
So it really floats around (almost invisible) a lot longer than you think.

Probably not enough to kill a bird outright- but nobody had to tell me it would be a bad idea to put a bird in a room like that.

Re: Allowing a parrot in a high ventilated part of my room AFTER burning incense, sce

That's the thing..incense is a somewhat notorious/shady industry...I used to burn a lot of it and there is a lot of controversy about the health impacts (stopped for my bird)----esp the chemicals used in many...that's just the human side of things...I also second the dust build-up...Again, ex incense user...If it is part of your religion or something, that would be one thing..but if that were the case, I still wouldn't pray in the same room with my bird ..Doubting that this is religious, but I know that it can be.

Re: Allowing a parrot in a high ventilated part of my room AFTER burning incense, sce

The answer is "Why would you take the risk at all in the first place, knowing that fumes/scents/smoke/odors effect all birds in a very serious and negative way, and that you may very well be hurting/killing your bird?"

You don't know what's in the incense you're burning, well, not unless you dipped it yourself. Same with burning candles, oils, etc. You have absolutely no idea what you're putting into the air, and as already mentioned, you can't see what is still floating around in the air...regardless, it really doesn't matter.

There is absolutely no reason at all to take a risk to your bird's health that you are fully aware of. Period. Your bird has an extremely sensitive and very unique Respiratory System, and their Air-Sacs alone make it imperative that they are not breathing-in any particulates in the air...and you're putting particulates all through the air when you burn incense, whether it's "natural" or not...So just don't burn it in the same room that your bird is going to be in within hours of burning it. Unless you think that being able to burn incense in your bedroom is worth risking the life of your bird. Then that's another story entirely, and you need to do some serious thinking...
