    The few times I have had to paint I have removed the birds
    from the house during painting and for a min. of a few hours
    after. Not sure if you could do this or not....ask a friend
    or family member to bird sit. My cockatoo likes to visit my
    mom - she thinks it is her vacation from us, she gets
    spoiled and we can relax and do whatever we have to do. ;-)

    Use fans, filters etc. to help the air clean out faster as
