I have a gas stove, my birds have always been far enough away from the kitchen in another area of the house that they aren't near the stove and the possibility of some gas leaking in the area if the electric start fails.
I don't think its a good idea to have birds anywhere near the kitchen where an appliance that produces any type of heat might harm them. I have a friend who's budgie died when it flew on top of her stove by accident, she had just finished cooking and the bird landed on the still hot burner which caused serious burn and shock causing the bird to die right away.
