- Real Name
so i’ve been reading a bunch about things that are bad for cockatiels. my birdie is 5 months old i’ve had him for 3 months. i know teflon is bad for them but we use only teflon, my grandma has also cooked with him on her shoulder once because she forgot and i sometimes bring him in the room while cooking bc i forget. we also use bathroom sprays. i’ve also burned candles a few rooms away and he’s been in the room with a burning candle once or twice but only for 5 min. my moms bf smokes and i heard that the smoke can get into their bodies by skin to skin touch. he has touched my bird before i will make sure he won’t anymore. i hope i’m not overreacting but i’m really worried since someone said that once it’s in their body it never comes out and it says there forever or something. does anyone have any advice?
