How do I get my bird to take a bath?


We hear this a lot – the reasons your bird needs to bathe are endless and we’ll talk about the whys later.

In the meantime here’s a quick tip.

Place your bird in or near the sink and turn on the water – slow trickle, not a rush, tepid temperature.

Then go turn on the vacuum. Many birds feel the sound a vacuum makes is similar to that of rushing water.

This sound may help coax their little butts into taking a shower.
