  • Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    I am going to be getting a cockatiel soon, and am very serious about taking care of it, and raising it to be a healthy bird. I smoke marijuana a day or two a week in my room where my tiel will be..

    Are there any known dangers of smoking around the bird.. I wont be blowing any smoke into its face or anything sick/stupid like that, but I have heard that fumes from paint etc.. can damage the birds, and I was wondering if pot/cigs will do the same thing?

    Re: Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    I wouldn’t do it. I don’t know much, but it seems like a risk that I’m not willing to take with my little baby, anyways, which is why I quit smoking cigarettes this morning.

    Scuse me while I go kill something. Probably my husband!

    Re: Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    I would say “NO”. Smoking anything around your bird is not good at all. They have very senistive respiratory systems and many fumes can kill them in a matter of hours. I am sure that “pot” would do some harm, if not instantly but over time.
    Just my thoughts!

    Ps, it really isn’t good for you either. It does kill brain cells, so think about a small little bird brains. if you smoked it even if you didn’t blow it in its face but in the same room!

    Re: Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    Both Pot and tobacco and very dangerous to birds.

    My suggestion would be to either forget about the bird ord place him in a smoke free room where there is a lot of people going around all day (like the living room) not the kitchen because of the fumes again (teflon kills bird so no cooking along for the birdies )

    If it is impossible for you to place the bird anywhere else than your room then it’s either smoke somewhere else, stop smoking (both pot and tobacco) orrrrr not get a bird at all.

    I’m sorry I know how fun it is to have a tiel and I’m sure you really really want one, but please think of it’s healt first to make a good decision.

    this isnt about smokeing this about aircon. i have babies cockatiels but there in a nesting box will it still hurt them.

    Re: Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    smoking in the same room as a tiel will definatly affect them, even in the nest box.
    so in short, yes.

    Re: Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    what about the aircondition they are in the nesting box could that still bother them i check on them everyday and they seem fine and they have stuff in there to keep them from being cold thank you fore responding

    Re: Cockatiels/All Birds and Smoke (i.e. Tobacco/Marijuana)

    well how cold is it? a general guide is if you can stay comfertable in there, they should be ok. if you can feel a cold breeze or anything, i bet ya they can too. but don’t let them get too hot either, birds have a high tempreture so they don’t have much room to get hot before it becomes life threatning. if it’s not cold, it should be ok.
