Birds... Who needs them!!

It is times like this , when I am spending my day wearing fuzzy gloves, taking each slat of my mini blinds between my fingers and wiping the dust off that I wonder why do I have so many birds...lol then I look at them and one gives me a kiss and another wolf whistles at me that I know.... They have no idea what a good looking human is so they love me anyhow...lol they are good for my ego and that is worth cleaning a little dust!! ( or a lot of dust in my case...lol )

Everyday I clean the bird room, I have dark carpet and I see it covered in dust everyday. They say green cheeks are not dusty - that is a lie - when look behind their cage there is more dust than Dusty Springfield.

I have 5 ( very messy ) budgies a parrotlet ( who is the really dusty one) and my conure... I have a rabbit air , air filter and I vacumn almost every day in there... The air filter pulls all the dust into that direction and it settles in big clumps on the walls so I dust that off every week or so... The blinds get left to 3 or 4 times a year as I do dust them with a feather duster weekly.... But some sticks.... I think all birds are dusty, just some more than others!

Out of the flock the quaker is the dustiest because of his very soft feathers, then the budgies - they're super dusty, lastly the conures and the senegal, they're not as dusty as others but still produce some dust. I have to wear a face mask sometimes to clean up because the dust aggravates my nose nasal cavities.

I have three - Congo African Grey, Double Yellow Head Amazon and a Red Fronted Macaw. My grey is just a little dust monster. But I am not complaining, they are so worth it. I also think they are great therapy - lol

I think cockatiels are one of the dustiest parrots...and I have 4 of them! They live in my boyfriend's room and everytime I go over there after cleaning it's like I never cleaned anything! I'm going to have to buy like a million swiffer dusters if I intend to keep up!

The cockatiels make quite a bit of dust but being as the majority of them are outside that isn't a problem for me. When the budgies were inside it was terrible! The rest of my flock isn't too bad at all though

Cockatiels are definitely really bad in the dust department.... especially when they molt. I swear you could make another bird out of all of those feathers!
