It sounds as if the birds died from the smell/fumes of cedar, which is a very aromatic wood. I definitely wouldn't let a bird near enough to it to chew after hearing that the smell is poisonous.

I have a friend who is very sensitive to chemicals. She gets sick if there are any in the air, and she can't have cedar in the house, so I'd guess it's probably the same problem for the birds.

Thanks for the infomation----I wouldn't have known it either. Cedar is greatly used for nest boxes to deter pests. Birds are very sensitive to fumes so it's good to know.

I never thought about cedar being toxic with the birds, good to know. When my son was little he had a pet mouse, kept in cedar shavings. My son became very ill, whith fever sinus infected, come to find out he was illergic to the shavings. So I can just imagine what it does to a small bird.

Who cooks with wood in an indoor oven? That makes zero sense to me. The only way i'd use them is on a grill.

I believe your right and they should only be used on a grill, outside.

Baking fish on cedar boards is one of those foodie fads that go around. It was really IN about a year ago. I have not heard much about it lately.

YOu wouldn't believe it but a lot of people. Big fad put out their by the celebrity Chefs. Never tried it. Had thought of it since we were not allowed grills were we live but couldn't be bothered. LOL
