Vaporizers ve humidifiers
It gets super dry in my house in winter. If its too dry, my nose will randomly start bleeding, so I run a vaporizer in my bedroom. The birds cages are in my room. When I did my research I decided on a vaporizer because it doesn't blow cold air and the mist is warm. It also kills any bacteria in the water because it is heated. I felt it was better for me and the birds. Today, I hadn't turned it off yet, and Lily landed in it. She has never tried flying before and I think it suprised her to end up across the room. She was trying to fly to me. Luckily I was next to the vaporizer and grabbed her right away. She did not get scalded, and other then being freaked out by her first flight, and me snatching her up so quickly, she is fine. I'm wondering now if a cool mist humidifier might be safer.
Do you use either? If so which do you use? If you use a cool mist humidifier are you concerned about the draft it creates, or any dust effecting your birds?
Of course, now that I know Lily has enough flight feathers to fly/glide across the room, I will just turn the vaporizer off before I let her out of her cage if I decide to stay with the vaporizer. I just want to see what everyone's opinions are on both. Thanks.
