Keeping Asthma At Bay
« on: August 14, 2016, 11:03:22 PM »

I suffer from asthma and the bird dander really gets on my chest. I use to keep pigeons many years ago and had to stop due to the dust' causing pigeon lung as we called it

Any how I've come up with a system that will help keep the dander at bay. Have a look at this
Hope it helps  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eidVfdcNbNA

Most of the regular members on here have air purifiers.
Have a look at Scarlett's website.

What a great idea building a cage in, looks good, the only downside is I can't see where you'll put all her toys but i'm sure you'll have thought it out.

Penny is gorgeous, really sweet.

On the purifier note, I have bad sinus problems & I bought a purifier for 100 and it was rubbish. I invested in a heaven fresh & it's amazing, I couldn't be without it.

These filters and extractor system is doing the job so far.

Yes the cage works really well. Me and a friend built it and sent it off to get powder coated. I just put eye screws in the wall and celling for her toys. We made her a ladder/perch to! Think she likes it lol
