I’m interested in getting into bird keeping but I’m not sure about it. I’ve been reading a lot. I learned they are sensitive to smells/fumes, especially teflon. Even if I swap out everything, it feels like there’s still a lot of things are dangerous to them. If I iron some clothes in a different room once, the birds will somehow die or the neighbors will have a teflon BBQ and then it’ll enter the doors if I open them etc. I feel like they are difficult to keep because of their sensitive respiratory systems and it’s keeping me from getting a bird. I did own rodents and they are also sensitive to smells, (they lived long until old age) but they have different respiratory systems though. I wouldn’t put the bird cage anywhere in this 2 story house other than a dedicated bird friendly bedroom with an air purifier running. The main areas of the house is rather open and when people cook, it fills the whole house with food smells. We don’t have any other fragrances, candles, sprays, plug in scents, chemicals, etc. in the main areas just occasionally spraying a smelly bathroom. So yeah, I don’t know if I want a bird or not. I worry about it’s well being and want the best for it. Also, I’m curious about your setups. Like where in the house do you keep the cages, do you use air purifiers, etc.
