Non-Stick Cookware and Teflon Coated Self-Cleaning Ovens
PLEASE – if you have Teflon or other non-stick pans get rid of them if you have birds. If you just have one pan that you only use once in a while it will still kill your bird. You can use it many times
“Teflon-coated cooking appliances and self-cleaning ovens release a colorless, odorless gaseous toxin and can cause death to a bird within 24 hours.”
Over-heated Teflon-coated cooking appliances and self-cleaning ovens release a colorless, odorless gaseous toxin (PTFE) that does not seem to affect mammals but can cause death to a bird within 24 hours. Your bird does NOT have to be near the kitchen for this to happen. Birds affected by Teflon fumes need immediate veterinary attention.”

In most cases you won’t have time to get to the vets.
