    Bath sprays or just water?

    Hi, I was wondering if I should stick to just using water to bathe my baby CAG or if I should also start using some sort of aloe bath spray. I have heard good and bad things about using aloe bath sprays and just want to do what’s best for my bird.

    Rockstar rocking a mohawk

    I woke up, got all Rockys stuff in order... then I heard a huge splash! Turn around and he is dancing in his waterbowl! What a dirty bird! He is molting so I bet that bath felt very nice! He'll be looking brand new after he dries a little.

    Need advice on bird bath

    My Java Rice Finches have decided their water dish is their bathtub and they bathe daily. So I bought a birdbath thing I can attach to the side of their cage, less invasive than sticking my hands in all the time to take it out and put it in. Problem is, they won't touch it, not even close. Their...

    Sudden Allergies?

    I have a Green Cheek Conure, this summer will be my fourth year will him and I have had him since he was two months old. I’ve noticed suddenly in Oct 2020 that I break out in hives on my arms and hands at random, and the last week have developed itchy dry eyes. I don’t know if it is possible to...

    DIY bird bath!

    I made a bird shower for my bird! The total cost for me (USD) was 40$. Drilling the drain holes in the plastic! Bad photo..water was spraying so I had to do it in the sink. As you can see in the photo, a water pump pushed water into a tube with holes that spray warm water to a certain spot...

    Video Budgie Bath Time!

    Kiwi and Blizzard took a bath in the sink! I was pretty suprised when Blizzard bathed :lol: She usually only bathes on her own in the water bowl. :budgie::budgie9:

    How do your IRNs like to be bathed?

    Looking to introduce my baby Indian Ringneck to bathing soon! He's still young, but we still need to keep those feathers clean :p What methods do you all use? I've heard from several sources that these birds are not the biggest fans of water, but of course each one's an individual. I was...

    Reluctant Bather

    Jedi HATES baths. I just spent nearly 30 minutes helping him with his pinfeathers, and when I was done, he had pinfeather dust all over him and smelled kinda gross. I offered him both a bowl of water as well as a spray bath, but he still refused. Eventually I just sprayed him down despite him...

    Video Adélies first bath

    So today Adélie, at 16 weeks and 2 days old, took her FIRST BATH! And you know I videoed it for you all! ;) Enjoy! ❤️ It took her a little while to figure out how to shake her tail to get rid of the excess water, but she figured it all out in the end :)

    Pictures There's a crocodile in my bathtub!!

    Soooooooo, this happened! This is Panzer. He's extremely old, he's completely blind, he's missing part of his tail, he has a tumour on his leg, he loves apples...and he is the newest member of the hrafn household. I'm such a big softie.

    Dislikes wet food & baths

    Tango is 18 months old and is mainly living off seeds. I try to give her fruits and veggies, but she doesn't seem to like wet food. She's fine with broccoli or lettuce, but foods like fresh apple, grapes, or strawberries not so much. The moment her beak touches them, she shakes her head like...

    How did you guys get your cockatiel to use a bird bath. I have the kind that hangs on the cage but they won't go anywhere near it, I left it in the cage for two days and nothing. I have resorted to using a mist sprayer but that wets everything around the cage including the carpet. The bath...

    Parakeet dust bath?

    I was wondering if an occasional dust bath would be good for my keets. I had just given them a bowl of fresh pellets and the female started flailing around in them. I'm not sure why she does this sometimes but it got me thinking maybe she'd like a dust bath. I know in the wild they use dust when...

    Vacuum = Bath

    Does anyone else's parrot take a bath every time they hear the vacuum cleaner. Lada's (Eckie) parront warned me about this. She said, every time she runs the vacuum, all her birds including Lada all take a bath (or pretend to take a bath) when they hear a vacuum. Does this happen to anyone else...

    Baby wants to bathe... but won't

    Hey there! I'm super new to this and I'm a pretty new bird mom. I have two lively conures a green cheek and a gold cap. The green cheek is a bit older and more accustomed to things. He's very adventurous and will try whatever we put in front of him. The gold cap is a bit more timid with things...

    Hello guys, First post here :) I have an answered question, no where on Google. My Lorikeet, Rainbow, is bathing too many times a day. When I say bathing, I mean self-bathing. He (or she) just go to the water dish, and starting soaking himself over and over. The water dish is on the top of the...

    Drying after a bath

    Sunflower absolutely loves water. She especially likes to play in the sink. It is adorable to watch her splash around and put her head under the running water. She is always flying into the kitchen to ask to play in the sink. We don't always let her because then she has to dry off. We were...
