How about gas fireplaces? Is it safe for a bird to be in a home that uses a gas fireplace? Do they need to be put in a different room when it's on?

Thanks!

Jo Ann.

If you are positive the aluminum isn't coated, then it should be safe....the only time aluminum releases toxic fumes (that I know of ) is when it is heated to the point of decomposition....

JazzsMom,

Depends on the type of fireplace you have. Ventless fireplace inserts seem to be a hot item nowdays, but personally, I would never use a ventless around birds. Even tho the units are designed to burn clean, I just wouldn't take the chance...

Vented fireplaces in good working condition shouldn't pose any problems as long as a person uses good common sense...just keep in mind that some artificial logs are treated with metalic salts (including lead) to add color to the flame, so proper venting is extremely important.
