I was just giving Rupert a bath, and his Lixit bathing bowl is mounted on the side of the cage, up at the top. His dinner bowl is sitting on top of the cage, about 6 inches away from his bathing bowl.

After several minutes of vigorous splashing, he hops over to his dinner bowl, where he proceeds to try and continue his bath on top of his veggies. :rofl: I about fell over laughing.

I thought he was going to grab a bite to eat, but his posture was weird. "Oh, surely you're not going to bathe in your veggies-- Sir! That is not how baths work!"

Maui does a lot of bathing without the water so I understand. :laugh:

Of course Maui is the only one to believe if he dunks his head straight in a throws it upward that anything will land on him. :cautious:

Has Rupert been reading some holiday brochures maybe? :laugh:
The only magazines he'd be reading would be from CornHub.

This is the same bird who bonked himself in the head with a mahogany pod? :laughin:
:batonthehead: No?

Rupert does the head dunk as well. That's primarily what he gets wet - the rest of him stays pretty dry, aside from his tail.

CornHub? Dare I ask @Peachfaced?? I am thinking NO! :laugh:
He does his sexy chicken dance every time he gets a piece of corn. :rofl: I made the magazine up, but if it existed, you bet your beak he'd subscribe to it.

He always knows! He almost did it for me near Christmas. I gave them both a grape as a treat. Rupert will dance around, extending his neck out and bow up and down. Tail flared, feathers on the back of his head "scooped" up. He kinda slow struts around, like look at me, I'm the man. :hybaby: This is particularly funny if he trips over his own feet, or walks off the edge because he is so focused on showing off and not paying attention to his surroundings.

It's around 40 seconds in. :shrug:


If you turn up the volume, you'll also hear him slurping a lot, as well as some angry beeps and beet-deet-deets from Sherbs.

Felix does that! I've given him a small bowl occasionally. Only his head gets bathed!:hilarious:
