Birds are definitely more sensitive to air quality than mammals. There are documented cases of parakeets and canaries dying when a Teflon coated pan overheated and the Teflon coating released fumes toxic to birds. I personally wouldn't be too concerned if I had a pet bird at home and was using a natural gas/propane range in the kitchen, but in the confines of a small trailer, He might be justified in avoiding use of the propane stove if he has a pet bird with him.

I do very little as far as domestic duties go around the house. When camping, I actually enjoy cooking and dishes, and do the lions share. Doing dishes only takes a few minutes a day, and often there are lots of others we camp with around to help, or at least chat with, all while enjoying the great outdoors we came to explore.

I much prefer the space that either a microwave or dishwasher take up for storage. Besides, they would need to be portable so I could use them outside.

Jim, you do get that the dishwasher reference was a joke, right?

By coincidence, I actually have a portable dishwasher that you could (but of course won't) carry and put out on the campsite table. It's a small unit intended for countertop use at home (Danby); we used it in our big fifth-wheel trailer.

Sorry, Brian, but I have to ask. Did she train the bird to do that? :LOL

Many years ago, my father-in-law had a parakeet that would go out of its way to nip my mother-in-law! It was so apparent what the bird was doing that it was rather funny.

The bird established his place a few years before I arrived on the scene, and has been trying to drive all perceived competitors away for decades. :

Speaking of birds...and sorry if this hijacks the post!!

Bad Parrot
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.
 
Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, 
the bird spoke-up, very softly, "May I ask what the turkey did?"
