In our email newsletter of 12/16/2012 found here: http://goo.gl/Whg3c one of our readers took issue with a statement we posted highlighted in orange below. We are posting her response which hopefully will provide clarity in the issue
 
Odor control & birds
 
Dear Fellow Parrot Lovers: I am one of your customers and I would like to know what in the line of spray, plug-ins or other items can I safely use in my African Gray parrots room to control unpleasant odors. I’m 67 and somewhat handicapped but I clean his cage and room as often as possible. “Thanks A Bunch”  
Dear Sir
 
Tough question. Birds are so sensitive to sprays, scents, perfumes, etc We do not have a product to suggest. Birds in general, aside from some Amazons do not have an “odor” issue. Keeping up daily with changing the paper, wet foods and feces will do wonders with odor control. Chicken coops are disgusting and it is due to the wet feces. Do you use cob litter in your trays? If so, stop and use a sheet of newspaper daily instead. The cob littler or pine shavings can hold moisture and create mold and mildew smells.
 
You could try some of the baking soda products that sit and absorb odors but they have to be NOT scented.”Unscented” is a scent. So you have to be very careful. Choose no scents or perfumes added.

A bag of fresh charcoal may also help if put in tubs and tucked under things and out of sight.

Last but certainly not least Prevue Pet’s T3 anti-microbial cage liner paper offers an excellent solution to odor control

 
I wish you the best.

Dear Windy City Parrot
 
I was very disturbed that in your latest email you told people that chicken coops are disgusting and stinky. Chicken coops are only that way if the chickens are not being cared for appropriately.
 
I would hate for anyone to think that the neglect of chickens is normal. If you know someone with problems taking care of their coop, please refer them to http://WWW.BackyardChickens.com for help.
 
I’ve had chickens in several different coops since back in the 1970s and have helped new owners many times that were having issues. BYC seems to have about the best help online that I’ve seen, in the forums.
 
I hope you will consider adding a couple of sentences on this topic in your next mailing.
 
Thank you,
 
Jennifer D
