    I forgot to add that Dupont is not the only company with non-stick
    coating. Maybe it is just theirs that is the problem. There are
    several differant manufacturers for pots and pans, and they get their
    supplies from differant companies.

    I also forgot to add that I am truly sorry for your loss of
    your "friend's" birds. I really do wish they hadn't died. It just
    seems odd though that with over 100 birds that I have rehomed, that
    none of the ones in my environment were affected.

    And how many of you guys out there smoke?
