    painting my room~what bout budgies??

    this week i'm going to paint my room. my budgies' cage is in my room, and i'm afraid that when i move them downstairs, they're going to fly back to my room. they usually do this! and plus, i'm afraid when i move them back in, they're going to die or get sick from the smell of the paint. how long should i wait to move the budgies back in my room? please reply asap!! thankz!!

    If you move the birds as far away as possible, keep the door closed and open the windows in the room you're painting then it will be well ventilated. Depending on the type of paint you use they may be able to got back in a day or two after painting it, just wait until the paint is totally dry and the fumes have gone as much as possible, the more fumes you smell the more dangerous it is to your birds.

    I was told when painting my bird cage with bird safe paints to leave it outside for at least 4-5 days becuse it can still leak enough fumes to kill your bird. I'd go a week just be on the safe side- I dont think it'll still leak fumes that long but I dont think that I would want to risk it either

    what color are you painting it?

    thanks for the replies! yes, i think i'll have to wait a week after i paint. i'm painting my room "rolling hills" green. i'm going to make my room japanese/korean style. bamboo blinds and sheer white curtains. pretty cool i think the budgies will like it too. i'm going to keep the budgies in the family room with their tree. i hope they can wait long enough!!

    Have the window open and put a fan there to circulate the air.

    I'd just like to add that you should be careful when painting anywhere that a bird will be around in the future. Don't use any more coats than necessary, make sure you don't create any 'beads' or runs of paint that your budgie could end up ingesting, etc.
