I don't have nor ever had a self cleaning oven unless you consider me (self) cleaning the oven so I don't know the answer to this but I'd probably take mine out unless they were grubby. Cleaning an oven is a job I hate doing so needless to say I try my best to avoid any spillage or splatter and wipe it down good.

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!

Yes, the fumes are toxic to birds. I have 4 parrots so I am extremely careful when I do the self-clean thing. I also have cats & I do worry about their little lungs, too. I should have done it already this year so I could have all the windows & doors open. It's getting cold now around here.

I'm all about the food!

I have a self-cleaning oven, and have only once used the self-clean feature in the past 6 years. The fumes were so awful that I never bothered using it again. Instead, I have a $1200 vapour steam cleaner that blasts it clean without having to use any nasty chemicals...it's still hard work, but at least we can breathe LOL!
