Is this safe??

cockatiel being blow dried - YouTube Since blow-dryers were very harmful for budgies, are they just as harmful to cockatiels?

It might have teflon in it or it might dry the skin. That's what I've heard!

I've posted a thread about her videos before. I wish I had that much, but sadly not till I've moved out from my current house Well I probably have just as many, but not all cuddly tame like that! My tame birds are in my siggy, I have tons more though!

I heard that they may have teflon in it, but I've used one on my tiels a few times and never had any problems. I haven't done it since I found out about what can happen though.

Dangerous for the previously mentioned potential teflon, as well as it being VERY easy to over heat a tiny little bird. I used to show poultry and we had to bathe them and blow dry them, and we had a couple that were very sensitive to the temp of the water (being too warm usually) and actually lost one from shock. It's best to let them air dry after a gentle toweling. We used a lamp if needed, but you have to check constantly to make sure they don't get too warm.

Oh I never heard it was dangerous.

Bob loves it.
I dont wanna put him to bed wet and he always bathed at nite.
Worried about him getting a chill.

I have my birds bathe in the middle of the day so it's not so cold at night. Also, since they do join me in the shower, I leave them in the bathroom to let them dry a bit while it's warm before taking them back into my bedroom.
