I am about to paint my house and am wondering if it will effect my Sun and Nanday Conures in any way. Is it ok to paint with them in the same room with me while I am painting.
Since I am asking about painting I have another question too. I do oil paintings also and was wondering if it's ok for my birds to be in the room with me while I am doing this. I use mineral spirits to clean up my brushes and thin the paints sometimes to. Mineral spirits is a lower order form of turpintine but not completely ordorless, although I have it in a closed container all the time unless it is being used to clean a brush. I also use several other toxic type of things for painting, but most are minimal as far order goes.
Thanks for any help you can give me. I am painting tomorrow in the house so please answer soon.
