Vicks is NOT safe to use around birds
by: Tracie

Yes, this would likely kill your bird. You will need to put the bird somewhere in the home where it will not breathe the fumes from the Vicks. Even Febreeze has been known to kill birds, when used in the same room as the birds.

Thank you soooo much for asking before doing this! You are a GREAT bird care person.

Vicks may not be on the list, but here is a Toxic / Non-toxic for birds list for your reference.
