I'm new here, and I have sooo many questions. The first being, does anybody have a natural wood fireplace that they use with thier "babies" in the house.

Thanks much for any info. My CAG is 7 months (Cozmo)

HI and welcome, we dont have a wood fire either, it would need to have a decent fire guard on, accidents can happen very quickly and parrots are trouble magnets! Not sure whether certain fuel that you burn could be poisonous either.

I don't have one myself but i'm told the smoke from them can cause problems. I do have an open flame fire but i never use in in the room with my grey in. It's become more of a room decoration

Ok - Well, I'm not going to chance it. I know the venting is good (no smoke in the house), but I was concerned about the carbon monoxide. I have a cm tester, but I still didn't want to chance it. Thanks much for everyone's help.

hello and welcome!...i don't have a real woodburning fireplace, but an electric (fake) one that i use...i wouldn't think it would be good for your baby, especially in the same room...lots of folks now use theirs for decorations, putting lights in it and such...

well just before christmas i was speaking to my cousin and he happened to mention he'd just had one of these wood burners installed after numerous repairs on his gas fire.

so i jumped straight in and asked about the fumes etc.regarding birds and he said yes they do give off fumes at first as you have to sort of burn off the stuff that its coated in when they're made,he opened his windows as the fumes lasted for several hours and even clung on to the fabrics in the house (curtains,setees etc.) so imo i wouldnt recommend having one.

my cousin thought however that if any birds were moved out say for a few days to let the smells fade away they might be o.k. but as i said it's not worht the risk.
