Question:

does durock cement board has zink or lead ? Does it afferct my birds?

Hi i want to know if Durock cement board has zinc or lead. Because I made a aviary in my backyard where i know have my lovebirds and some have started giving me sign of lead/ zinc poisoning i would like to know if Durock has it and if it affects my birds thank you.

Answer:

If your birds are Parrot like Budgies etc , they are for ever nibbling at wood or anything else., Do you know the signs of Lead poisoning,Paralysis being the main one. Durock does contain minute particles but have you considered that it could be Mice droppings or mice urine contamination on their food as the symptoms are similar. Your birds must be actively eating the cement board, which you will be ble to see by the damage to the board. Otherwise you must contact a vet asap. Avian Care Consultant
