Re: Bath time!

Haha thanks Wendy 😄. It's so funny how they go into "bath mode" lol

Any reviews on shower perches? Recommendations?

(PS-
I just finished making some bamboo ladders for when I remodel his jungle gym &#128522

Re: Bath time!

It took a long time for any of my smaller birds to accept the shower perch. I bought it on Etsy.com. I've seen them on Ebay, too. Bigger birds seem to like the perch, and showers in general. As long as it's secure, it should be fine. A friend did not put it up properly, and it fell with the bird on it. He has not been able to get the bird into the shower again.

I could see that being traumatic!! 😁

I guess getting one wouldn't hurt- even if he absolutely won't use it in the shower I could always use it as a window perch for him... I'm ok with continuing using a spray bottle to mist him if it comes down to it lol

Re: Bath time!

I made my own shower perch, but must admit, that the big macs like it much better than the Amazons. My Amazons prefer a spray bath (mister) over taking them into the shower.

Here's the link on how to make a shower perch. It is SUPER easy and cheap. DIY Shower Perch (VERY easy)
