Re: couple of questions...

Just about anything that puts fumes or fragrance into the air can be potentionaly harmful to a birds resperiatory system, I'm not sure of the residue it would leave on the birds things, ie cage, toys, percehes, and how toxic it would be if at all, I guess a lot would depend on the proximity of the cage to the kitchen as to residue issue, however I wouldn't have the bird anywhere in the house at all should you decide to use it, sounds like we're back to putting our birds back in the bubble

Re: couple of questions...

Some 10 years ago when I first got a self cleaning oven, I asked my avain vet the very same question. Vets don't all have the same opinions re such things, but his response was firm. The fumes of a self-cleaning oven during that cycle are not good for man or beast and potentially deadly for birds even in neighboring rooms. His suggestions were: 1) NEVER use any type of cleaning agent inside the oven before activating the self cleaning cycle to help loosen the grime, even things like ammonia or baking soda.2) Remove birds from the from the environment. Set up negative pressure if unable to remove birds from house...ie the air is moving from where the bird is toward where the oven in. One way to do this is put bird in room far away with door shut at same level or below and open window, weather permitting, in room between room where bird is and kitchen. Then open door or window in kitchen and place strong fan there blowing OUT. My vet thought this best also for any humans especially those with COPD or Asthma if the system is going to be activated. Then finally never leave home with the thing set on and pets or vulnerable humans remaining behind. Anyway that is his opinion.

Re: couple of questions...

I would not take a chance using any "potential dangergous products" while my bird is in the house. Even hours later, an odor still lingers on.
Rather be safe than sorry

Re: couple of questions...

I use my self cleaning oven with some precautions. Birds are in the sleep room with door closed. Heat exchanger is turned off, although I did forget to do that one time. Windows open in the house, and fan on in range hood. I have a Canary...supposedly a very sensitive respiratory system. I have had no problems.

I do question that all fragrances can be harmful....I don't use scented products etc. but my house often has fragrant flowers(today it's Lilies from the garden). The scent is quite strong but I'm assuming birds encounter natural scented things in the wild.

Re: couple of questions...

I don't take a chance! I hand scrub and wipe it down well.

Sorry by fragrance I meant artificial such as aerosol and pump spray types as well as most scented candles, things of that nature
