You can check the can for listed VOC's and read about those here:
Best bet is to call the 800 number for the paint manufacturer
and tell them how you wish to use the paint and just ask if it
is recommended or not. It isn't that the birds will be chewing
on the wall so much as the woodwork, so as Fran says, the child
safe paint IS the best.
Most of the danger lies in the VOC's emitted during the drying
process. After that, the carrier (mostly water for latex paint)
is gone and only the pigment remains, but it does contain rubber
or plastic compounds.
