Tips on Showering Your African Grey

In the wild, birds will bathe in shallow pools of water or shower during the rain. It is important that in captivity, we allow our birds the opportunity to do this at least once a week.

Bath time is something that many parrots thoroughly enjoy. We just have to find a method that works best for our birds. Your parrot will let you know whether or not something is working for them. Not all parrots will shower with their humans in the shower; but that doesn’t mean that they don’t enjoy showering. We just have to find a way that works best for them. As is true with all training, always give your bird the option to participate rather than forcing them to comply.

*Please make sure that when showering/bathing your birds you use only plain water. DO NOT use shampoos or soap.

    Can someone help? My red fronted parrot hates showering. I tried using the spray bottle, shower head, gently lowering him into a puddle, leaving a bowl filled with water, pouring water on his head with a cup and spraying him with water inside his cage.
    He hates all of the above methods so what do i do?
