Lead paint in bird room

Hi everyone,

I have 4 cockatiels and a parrotlet. We just moved into a new house that was built in the 60’s, which means that there is probably lead paint underneath all the newer paint. I wasn’t too worried until today I caught one of my tiels nibbling on a crack in the wall. They also chewed on the painted doorframe a little bit.They all seem fine, but I will call the vet in the morning to be safe.

I was wondering if it’s possible to bird proof the room so they can be out of the cage safely? They stay in the bird room, but we mostly only cage them at night. Has anyone else dealt with this?
