The air filter is a good idea for anyone living with birds
but I dont think one will fix your problem.
If your macaw is showing signs of respiratory problems then
DO NOT put him back in the same room as your cockatoo EVER.
It sometimes takes years for the problem to show itself but
macaws are very susceptible to the cockatoo powder as some
people are. Some never show any signs but once they do the
problem gets worse if you continue to expose them and your
bird could die.
I know this first hand as I lost a B&G from this. He would
have problems and I would move him to a room by himself and
he would get better and then I would move him back. In a
week or so I would have to move him out again. I dont think
he would have died if I had not put him back with the
cockatoo after the first time.
