Re: Shipping

I see .... Just didn't know if shipping birds was frowned upon or not. This opens up my area a little bit - but if I do end up shipping I definitely think I will take your advice. Summer shipping isn't even recommended for snakes, I shudder to think what would happen to a bird.

Re: Teflon question

Thanks for the help guys! Exchanging my nonstick stuff for non-nonstick stuff won't be a huge problem, I think. I'm just glad I asked - I would have thought that having the bird a distance from the kitchen and turning on a vent fan would have been enough! It would break my heart to kill my bird simp...

Re: Shipping

Somehow, someone telling me that shipping birds via FedEx is a bad idea is not surprising. As to the Delta method, do people generally agree that this way is safe for the birds? I know flying with one's dog is generally not advised, as a large number of dogs die every year from suffocation or heart ...

Shipping

I have several snakes and in that hobby shipping snakes via FedEx is fairly common. Does this apply to birds as well? I assume shipping birds is not quite as easy as shipping snakes, if it is done at all. I only ask because I live in Montana, and there are exactly 4 bird breeders within a 250 mile r...

Re: Teflon question

Sigh. I must have missed your last sentence about not using cooking aerosols, Ellie. Whoops!

Re: Teflon question

Ah. I kinda figured that would be the case. Investing in non-nonstick pans will be a must, then. This makes me sad - I'd finally found a lovely wok that food slid off of like it was buttered, lol! As far as the aerosol goes, if I use hair spray and then the bird nibbles on my hair, will that hurt hi...

Teflon question

Hello all, I don't have a ringneck yet but I am thinking about getting one ... trying to get most of my questions answered before I commit : ) I know Teflon is a big no-no for birds .... from my reading I can surmise it is the fumes? Or would the bird have to chew on it? I make a lot of stir-frys in...
