    Hi, I have a Green Cheek Conure and am looking to decorate the room he is in, I know to look for non - VOC paints and have found a company called Lakeland Paints. Has anyone had any experience before with using Lakeland Paints around their birds?

    TIA

    Their product is very good, but with a budget to match!

    As there has been general improvements in the domestic paint market, and a lowering of the levels of VOCs that are allowable in domestic products, then manny people tend to use the very low VOC paints such as Crown Breatheasy, keeping there birds away from the area being painted and ensuring very good ventilation.

    I guess choice depends on your budget and if you can move your lovely conure to a safe room whilst carrying out your works.
