I want to give my babies baths because when they eat babyfood or their cookies or the homemade snacks (thanks for the recipe helwa!), they are a true mess!

How do I give them a thorough bath?

you can do what i used to do which is turn the water on not too cold... room temp ish, and put them on the floor of the sink (make sure you clean it out first and only let like 1/4 of an inch of water build up and they should splash around, you could also go out and get them a bath...

I have that clip on bath in their cage already that they use, but sometimes, food gets stuck to their beaks and stains their feathers. Anything I should do for that?

Mine doesn't like to get the bath i tried putting it in her cage, but she does not seem to care. I spray her with mist and she seems to enjoy this especially now when it's soooo hot 95-110f

I find the baby food has to wear off. It makes me think of nail polish on a nail, it can get into a thin stuck on layer that you can't even rub off with a wet q-tip, I just leave the bath out the rest they will rub off like Heather said on the perches. This I know when Coco tried to eat the q-tip as I tried to clean her sticky beak lol. No way mom.
