Hey all. :yellow pied:

Just asking any experienced 'Tiel parents if its okay to run a treadmill in the room with the bird cage and table in it? I don't know if this would be a problem or not. Please let me know as my husband has carried our treadmill in the house all by himself and I am ready to use it! :) Don't want to scare our baby though.
Thanks for your time!

It should be OK. The bird will need some time to get used to the change (whether it's him or you running on the treadmill lol) so go gently at first until he's had time to figure out that it isn't dangerous.

Us too! Now I just have to get on the thing. I think I will start out slowly walking and see how everyone reacts. They will probably be amazed that I'm working out :D

We have a treadmill in our bird room and it isn't a problem. The noise doesn't bother them; it's no worse than the vacuum cleaner. I do keep them caged when the treadmill is going though, as I don't want them getting pinched by the belt or pulled under.

Sounds like I'm not the only one who turned the workout room into the bird room. :)

I would aboslutely not have the bird OUT while I was on it. Flys over to you, misses and boom bam boom dead bird. But other than that should be fine.
