I tried using a bath for the longest time without success. I guess my birds thought the bath is for drinking only. So, I am using a mist spray and I give them a nice soaking (LOL) spray every Sunday to make sure they are clean.

This morning, I put the two birds together in the same cage and gave them a good spray. Now, they are perched inside the cage like ragged dolls preening each other. They should be busy with that for the next half hour

Oh cool, I should try that spray thing. smile I keep forgetting about that. Joey seems to think the bath is for drinking too. So weird. :p
That's so cute about your two birds preening each other after a spray bath. laugh

I bathe birdie in his cage bath and the outside bird tub I bought.

I haven't given Bella a bath, yet. I can't even get her out of her cage, yet. Soon...

How do you know if they like the misting spray? I've put a clear bowl of water in the cage but she's never gotten in it. what kind of a bath does she need? The previous owners said she loved to get in her bath, but i can't let her out yet because she's so wild. she preens herself but is she tired of being dirty? Should i get a special bird bath that hangs on the cage? what do you guys have? thanks! i'm a brand new parakeet owner!!

I give Kacey a bath in the sink, but I'm starting to keep a small bath inside the cage.
