Hello all, we also travel with our African Grey and we are planning a trip over New years and it is pretty cold so we will need to use the RV heater. Is the heater fumes safe for birds? I would think so, but would like any input anyone may have.

Beautiful, we used to travel with a Quaker Parrot named Tobi, he would go for walks around the CG and sit on his perch outside our trailer. When older women would walk by he would say "whatcha doin" and when young girls would walk by he would whistle. He loved when all the campground kids would come and visit him. Unfortunately I started working more and more hours and Tobi was unhappy and he took it out on my wife, he would bite her and scream constant when I wasn't around. I found a lady that had many birds and gave him to her. Sometimes I really miss him at the cg he was always a good way to open conversation.

We have a propane furnace and electric fire place in our trailer. I always get nervous using them with Izzy ( African Grey).
So far we have had no problem, as long as all equipment is in working order. I have a air cleaner that I use in the trailer just to make me feel better.

We camped last January in Virginia for a week and a half with the dogs and our cockatiel. It was very cold, furnace was continually on. Sydney was fine I just kept a towel over part of her cage to keep the drafts away.

Friends who have a severe macaw used to camp with us. GB loved it when they drained their solar shower - he'd run back and forth underneath it with his wings spread, muttering with pleasure as the water dripped out on him. (He'd also bite holes in their air mattresses - back in the tent-camping days - and then scuttle just out of reach and laugh and laugh.)
