photographic chemicals?

i have home darkroom that i use for film development and black and white paper processing. it is down the hall from the room bird lives in. she is never allowed in and i never bring any of the chemicals out when she is out. that being said, i know bird have hella sensitive lungs, so the fumes from the chemicals still be dangerous to her from that distance? keep in mind that i keep that door shut at all times.

You can always have a small fan on outside the room your bird is in to blow any smell of chemicals away back in the direction of your black room just in case some odor follow you when you leave the room.

Just put the fan on when you are using the room.

I'm glad to someone still does darkroom work! My husband and I use to develop film, make black and white prints and then later color prints and slides. We had our birds in the living room and we were in the kitchen of our apartment. We never had any issues, but to be safe run an exhaust fan that exhausts to the outside and defiantly use film cleaner elsewhere. The rest of of the chemicals should be safe if not too concentrated.

Remember if you are smelling it, it's probably too much for them.
