Hello guys,, Would just like to introduce myself. I am the proud owner of a beautiful African grey called Smokey.
He is 19years old and I have had him from a 4 month old baby. I have had to foster him out for a while as my husband found his dust was affecting his breathing badly as he has copd.
I am absolutely heartbroken but have to put my husbands health first.

Hi, Lincoln and Smokey, welcome to the forum! I am so sorry that you've had to separate from your bird! But, excuse me for being nosy but I am a bit confused.. Why board/foster him? I mean, it's not as if he is ever going to come back with you, right? Or is he? I've had asthma for 50 years and it has gotten worse over the years so now I pretty much need to use a preventive twice a day to be able to breathe normally but, although I have a gray and a too, the air purifier and the open windows (I always leave a crack open, even in the coldest days because birds need fresh air) allow me to keep them without a problem. Couldn't something like that be done in your home? Or does your husband have hypersensitivity pneumonitis as well?
