Hi Folks. I read conflicting information on the web about which humidifier type is "best" or "safe" for parrots. I prefer to stay away from warm-air types.
Ultrasonic vs. Evaporative vs. ?????

Please share which humidifier(s) you use AND how long you have used it around your fid(s). Thanks.
Homedics cool mist humidifier. Has made a huge difference, and Kumar loves to go directly in the steam and take a steam bath.

Kalidasa, How long have you been using it around Kumar?
I just got it a week ago. I use it around him every day. If he's in my room I keep it in my room. I keep it near the cages at night. If I'm gone and he's in his cage I run it right next to the cage so the steam floats in. He loves it. He goes right up to it, grinds his beak with pleasure. It's helps my sinuses also :) that one looks like the same sort, the cool mist is better I think, and safer. I got mine at bed bath & beyond for like 50.00. Yours is a little smaller, but there's no real difference except you'll be filling it more. I'm considering getting another smaller one just for my bedroom. I should have thought of this sooner.
I just ordered [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Crane-Ultrasonic-Humidifier-Gallon-output/dp/B005PK7RW4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392642280&sr=8-1&keywords=humidifier"]this one[/ame] the other day. Our apartment is so dry it's been painful for us. It's the best rated one on Amazon, so I'm hoping it'll be pretty decent.

Won't really get to see how it works for the bird until we actually get him, though, haha.
