    Copied from Birdline Facebook

    WARNING.... Not sure if people already know this, I know I didn't! 
    A guy on fb has just lost 3 of his birds, he is heartbroken but is trying to raise awareness on a toxic killer.... He put white vinegar in his dishwasher to clean it and now 3 of his birds are dead.... He has spoke to qualified avian vets in his area and researched that when white vinegar is heated over a certain temperature it lets off toxic fumes similar to carbon dioxide.... So dont do anything with vinegar that involves heating it around birds poor guy and poor birdys xx fly free little ones xx
