I was sitting at home last night chatting with my daughter who came for diner and I mentioned I could smell TCP, she commented she could too. The strangest thing was I don't have any TCP in the house and neither does my daughter, no more was thought about it. About 15-20 minutes later my daughter left and I was sitting watching the tv when one of the side lamp went off then about 30 seconds later it went pop. Investigating the bulb it had popped but not broken but was smoking a bit from where the glass tube entered the bulb base, the odour was akin to TCP. Concerned I opened all the doors and windows to thoroughly ventilate the area as this is where our Blue & Gold (Rio) resides, 20 minutes later closed back up as the area was then clear. Fortunately Rio was not affected, no doubt wondering what the late evening breeze was all about. Has anyone heard of gases from light bulbs being a hazard for our birds, the one causing this was a low energy with the curly glass tubes.
