Just stumbled across this from another forum
"Burning "ANYTHING" around the birds creates combustible particulate in the air they breathe which they take in. The real problem with that is their air system is not like our lungs which expels most things that enter. Their air sac system deposits and stores anything they breathe in. It does not get expelled so by burning anything you are slowly killing/shortening their life along with that poor quality of life they are going to live with as they get older."
It's a direct quote from someone but I figure they won't mind if it saves lives.

Many people don't realize that candles have metals in the wicks, as well.
