I was thinking about getting a laminator but I was wondering if it would be safe around the birds? I know the safest thing to do is to do without since I don't have a bird free area to use it in. I tried to research and didn't find much so any input will be much appreciate. :)

Heated plastics give off fumes. Not a lot but noticeable. My general rule is 'If you can smell it the birbs are breathing it', so my thermal laminator is banished to the bottom drawer. I'm in the UK so I can't recommend one but look for a cold laminator.

I looked into them a bit earlier and they looked super expensive. I may just end up forgoing it so I don't hurt the guys. I was just going to laminate some D&D stuff so it wasn't a crisis if I couldn't. Thank you for the help! :D
