Cutie-pie!

I have a question for you, Helwa.
Why do birds have an odor on their feathers after they have a bath?

Like their body has an odor.
Is it the water?
Thanks.

not sure, what kind of odor?

normally birds just smell like seeds since they tend to be around them and seed do have a smell but its not a bothersome smell.

a bird will smell like its environment, so if the bird has a foul or unpleasant odor its probally something nasty in his cage or he could be sick, being sick tends to make them smell bad.

I noticed a odor on my bird the other day when she got a really really wet bath! I was not sure if it was bad, but it was a new smell.

I replaced her water, and then had her get back in, when she was full dry it was gone. Maybe the little feathers get "wet bird smell"

after re-reading helwa i think it may have been a wet seedy smell.

possibly ... i happen to love the way they smell haha so im the wrong person to ask LOL

but if you smell a foul smell, thats not normal, specially if its comeing from their mouth, that could be a very serious issue.

cosmo just smells like seed and sunshine smile

could be the water... smell your water.

here in florida we have water that literally smells like the business end of a cow frown

its horrid... sulphur water ... yuckkk outside at night when the sprinklers come on it smells like a cow pasture frown

sometimes the water smells more than other times ... we have a water cooler and get water delivered to the house in those huge 5 gallon jugs and it has the temperature controls on it, for hot cold and 'normal' water ... i use that water for EVERYTHING including birdie bath water ... i cant even stomach turning the sink on to wash dishes half the time

how do you give a bird a steam bath? Can you give a steam bath to cockatiels and parakeets as well? I mist my birds every morning, but they rarely go into their baths.

HAHA

i turn the shower on super hot and steam up the bathroom really good and let her sit in there, not anywhere where she can get into the steaming hot water though.

the humidity does wonders for their skin.

Aww Cosmo is such a cutie smile Such personality written all over that cute lil face.
Just how on earth do you get your birds to snuggle in a towel after a bath??????

haha everyone asks that... ive just always done it, they enjoy it alot, i think the only reason jazzie takes a bath is so she can snuggle up in the towel afterwards HAHA

so cute and comfy looking!! i noticed "wet bird smell" too. dogs, birds, even the occasional rain soaked cat... they have a "wet animal smell" that varies according to size, how often they are bathed, how wet they are and if they have a tendency while outside, to roll in something else's poo! lol! wet bird is a unique smell but not unpleasant one. what i love is the smell of "warm birdie" (especially after the "wet bird" smell has dried off! haha) that is such a comforting smell. smile
we are DEFIANTLY all CRAZY BIRD PEPOLE.... we have to be to be because here we all are having in depth discussions about poo and how our birds smell!
omg! rofl can you imagine us all having a serious discussion about the poo habits and the smell of our wet children or husbands!!! hahahaha!

Re: couple cute pics of cosmo - 08/19/09 10:26 PM

LOL @ artichoke hahahahaha

cosmo is the most snuggly animal ive ever seen ... well my cat and her might tie on who is most snuggly and they are severly jealous of each other!!!

cosmo sleeps on the floor of her cage, she will sometimes sleep on her perches but she perfers her bed.

because she sleeps on the floor i made her a series of fluffy fleece beads... she even has a couple of small cat beds LMAO

she lays flat on her belly head turns sideways and sleeps smile

LMFO!
You all got me laughing over here.

Helwa, can you post pics of your cat?
I'm just one of those crazy cat ladies.
I don't blame people if they are one though :P

I'd LOVE a cat.
Never had one as a child or growing up.
Always told by an adult when I was even in my 20's, "No, kitty cat for you".
Wah!!!

Mom wraps Quincy in a towel like that. It must be a Quaker trait. He is a cuddle bug too.

Re: couple cute pics of cosmo - 08/20/09 08:20 AM

yea quakers are very cuddly, but ussually with just one maybe two people...

all she wants in life is to be with me, on my shoulder, snuggled up under my chin, doing my hair, just with me and on me. her not being able to have that 24 hrs a day is the cause of much arguing between her and i hahaha

and she can make those pretty brown eyes of hers look so sad and so downright pitiful that she ends up getting whatever she wants LOL
