i would either find a way to cage the fans so your :gray: doesn't get hurt or restrict him to an area where the fans can be shut off while he's free.we have one ceiling fan in our bedroom i cut it off in the morning before cages are open and turn it on at night after they go to bed.

Consider using enclosed box fans instead and disabling the ceiling fans.

Michael has a brilliant idea. Just make sure your birds don't land on it.
