Where to bathe?
Owners of small birds usually find it convenient to make arrangements for in-cage bathing. Owners of larger birds have more out-of-cage options. Choosing the right option will reduce hassles and make bathing enjoyable for you and your bird:
Heavy, low-profile, bath bowl - For in-cage bathing, select a short, heavy, and stable bowl or cooking dish, and fill it with water one to two inches deep, depending on the size of your bird. The low height is beneficial for perching and helps reduce tipping. In their exuberance, however, birds may splash water over the rim, wetting the bedding below. To avoid creating a breeding ground for bacteria, fungus, and mold, be sure to replace the bedding any time it becomes wet.
Cage-mounted bath - Well-designed baths can be temporarily attached to the side of the cage. These are fun for the bird, can be removed for easy cleaning, and help keep moisture away from the cage floor.
Wet branches - Some birds will bathe themselves by rubbing their feathers against moistened greens placed in their cage. In addition to promoting cleanliness, the greens also help round out your bird's diet.
Basic Bird Bathing Tips
Bathe your bird in lukewarm to room temperature water
Fill bathing bowls only one to two inches deep, depending on the size of your bird
Never spray directly into your bird's face
Never expose your wet bird to the cold or drafts
Never use soap
Bathe your bird early in the day to allow adequate drying time
Never force your bird to bathe
Never use an electric blow dryer on your bird
Consult your veterinarian if your bird becomes soiled with a substance that is difficult to remove
Keep Everything in Moderation
Birds have a body temperature of about 105°F, maintained in large part by their feathers. To avoid chilling your bird, use lukewarm to room temperature water for baths. During the bath, and while the bird is drying, be sure that the room is warm and that there are no drafts. Try to bathe your bird early in the day so that she will be completely dry before she goes to sleep.
Some larger birds will allow you to help dry them. Try wrapping your parrot or cockatiel, for example, in a towel and gently stroking her body in the direction that the feathers lay. Never use an electric hair dryer. It can seriously and quickly burn your bird, and may even emit toxic fumes.
After a healthy bath, you may notice your bird's chest muscles shivering. This behavior is not due to the cold, but rather the result of muscles contracting and expanding to generate body heat and help dry the feathers.
