    Hello everyone! I have a situation I'm hoping you can advise me on. I need to make a repair to my shower, requiring a waterproofing agent, mortar, and caulking.

    New Furnace

    My landlord had a new (central air) gas furnace (Arcoaire brand) installed after the last one failed. It began running 10/12. My birds have been kept at my parents since then (10 days today).

    How long do I wait to air out the house after using things toxic to birds before I get my birds back

    So we got new hardwood floors, and of course being parrot owner I check in to see what products they are using.

    Incense Fumes?

    I know birds are extremely sensitive to fumes, so I wanted to make sure of something before I did it. I was wondering, if I have my bird in a room with the door closed and fan going, and had incense burning in a nearby room with that door also closed and fans on, can the incense fumes still get...
