My bird does not like showers at all. He hates spray, mist and normal showers and I don't know how to introduce him to the habit of showers? He tries to walk away from anything that has water in it, and hates having to be near them.
I didn't know which forum to post my problem on so I just went for the first one. The parrot I own is a new family member (although I don't know which gender) almost 1 year now. I found him in a pet store of in the corner, he looked stressed and in need of love so I had to buy him,since then he has been one of my closest friends. He loves socializing with people (but doesn't want to be touched by strangers) and he is the sweetst bird ever. So please if you have some sort of solution to my birds problem (His/Her name is Sponge) I would love to hear it!
Hello and welcome to the forum. A lot of Greys do not like being sprayed although they will bathe in their drinking water bowl. I use a very small sprayer that fits in the palm of my hand. (Such as an air plant sprayer or even better the sort of sprayer you can get in toiletry travel packs) Try spraying from underneath rather than overhead.
Somewhere in another universe, dear brother, you got saved.
Grey's don't enjoy showers like other parrots. My grey, Sheeba, takes a a weekly bath in her drinking water. Once she is really getting into it, I get out the spray water bottle and spray her a bit, she doesn't like it, but she will put up with it for a few minutes. Needless to say, she is a pretty dusty bird! Drives my wife crazy and our vacuum works daily.
