If it’s warm in the house and the bird is free (clipped wings though) can you have an overhead fan on low? I’ve always been concerned about the slight breeze unless Pip is in his cage and covered.
There is obviously a risk, but there is a risk to all things. We run our home all year long at 75 degrees. The HVAC runs its fan all the time. We run a couple of ceiling fans on low all the time around the house. Rio has a bed cage in a room that has a ceiling fan that seldom runs and never at night. He has a very large cage that has a cover for sleep time to keep window lights from getting him during sleep time. Our birds are free flight and seldom clipped. Now the risk. We have had this set up for the decade plus for Jules and Bo and now Rio. Jules and Bo never had a issue with them. Rio on the other hand is completely fearless about more things that I wish he was. He has bumped into one of the ceiling fans and lost a bunch of feathers in the top of his head that took about a month to grow back. Rio did the ceiling itself again about a month ago and lost his head feathers again. They have mostly grown back again. So no harm done. But as I mention there is a risk. The question is if you think the risk is worth it for you.If it’s warm in the house and the bird is free (clipped wings though) can you have an overhead fan on low?

You should be good then.bumping into the ceiling fan wouldn’t be a risk since Pip can only glide a bit when his feathers grow in a little. I was just concerned about the potential breeze on a warm day making him sick.
I do feel a bit bad about keeping him clipped, but I’m terrified of inadvertently opening a window or door and losing him. That being said, he has free run of the house except at night (and if he’s in a timeout). And he can run really fast when he wants to get to me or get away. Lol
