Sorry to hear of your breathing problems with your wife. It can be a pain the dander from the birds. I shower our crew with a squeegy bottle of tepid water several times a week and that helps enormously with the dust. They also go outside on days the weather permits and that also keeps it to a minimum. Hope your wife is feeling better really soon and you are able to solve the problem and keep your bird. Good luck.

We spray him several time's a week also & he goes outside when the sun's out , Only option is for him to go in other room but dont want to do that as he will be on his own.

Air purifiers are very good, may be worth a try?

So sad if you have to part with him, but best sooner rather than later . Sad


Have to say that in general the feather dust if often not thought about or even realised until many folk have got their bird. It rarely gets mentioned when things are written up about keeping parrots....a word of caution wouldn't go amiss

We can be fine for years and then for some unknown reason suddenly develop all kinds of reactions to things that have never bothered us in the past. What springs to my mind is "nothing quite as queer as folks"! meaning that in the nicest possible way! Hope you are able to find a way around your problem, but at the end of the day your wife's health comes first as you cannot put a price on that. Good luck,give her my best wishes.

Well think i might of cured my problem, In my spare time i build & repair pc's so i have load's of spare part's as some of you may know pc's have cooler fan's, So here's what i have made i took 2 cooler fan's 1 for the intake fan & 1 for the exhaust fan ( hope your with me so far ) then i got a freind who's an engineer to make me a polished alloy frame to sit the fan's in.
Thinking what i could use as a filter then bingo wife was cooking in the kitchen with the extractor fan on for the cooker & hidden in some extractor fan's there's filter section's, Next day i went out & bought 2 filter's 1 course & 1 fine cut them to size fitted 1 next to the fan & the coure in front of that one fitted it all in the polished frame connected 12v supply ( no it didnt blow up lol ) work's perfect.
Had to go one better & now have fitted a speed controller so i can run the fan's fast or slow & the good bit is these fan's only being 12volt's dont use much electric & very silent......JOB DONE.

Ron I am impressed! Now that is what i call using your initiative, do so hope it is going to be the answer to your poor wife's problem with the dust. Let us know how it all goes and if it works? Hope your wife is a lot better by now anyway. It would be so lovely if you were able to keep your companion bird as I know from my lot it would be a big huge wrench to have to part with any of them. Still if needs must, fingers crossed for you both though.
