350 for 25 minutes ought to do it.

By exhaust do you mean like your vent hood? Or is this a Jenn-Air range?

Remove your vent hood then take the nest out so they don't keep coming back then block the outside with chickenwire.

You won't be able to every use your vent with it in there with since it'll be full of grass and twigs from a nest, not to mention birds are highly unsanitary.

1. Reverse the polarity of fan wires
2. Cook bird in oven
3. Enjoy with a nice garden salad

we had this in our place when i was a kid. can you tell where the nest is? odds are it is in the vent going horizontal and not the part near the range hood. i believe pest control companies will remove the birds and nesting for you, then as already mentioned, put up chicken wire over the vent.

My tennets had birds two weeks ago with chicks in the nest no less. After taking the hood off and pulling the vent tube out covering both ends then just dumped the nest in a garden.

^^ if it's just above the fan, removing it from the outside is probably impossible, and vice versa. try to figure out where the nest is (does it sound far or near when they chirp).

it's not going to be fun anyway you approach it.

Call a duct cleaning guy and have him vaccuum the nest out. He could even do the rest of your vents while he was there.



Do you not use your stove? I couldn't imagine a bird ever having a chance to build a nest in a stove vent, as the stove is normally used everyday

It doesn't matter how you save the birds. Just make sure you start a thread about it when you do.

like i said, it has happened to me as a kid, but think of it this way. if a nest made out of bits of grass and twigs can survive way up in a tree basically balancing on a branch, i'm sure they have no trouble living inside a tube with a fan that comes on now and then.

That's true.

I have a gas stove and the amount of carbon monoxide that goes through it would kill any baby birds but I guess if you had electric, you wouldn't need it on as much.
