Re: how often do you bathe you amazon

Mine get a "soaked to the bone" bath at least once a week, but then I spritz them down with a plant mister a bit a few times during the week, too.

My Amazons LOVE water.

Daily mistings, weekly soakings.

The only bird I have that does not like water is my CAG. The zons and the big macs love it!

Mine get out in the tree everyday when it's hot enough. I have a mister setting on the hose. Those that want it, get wet. Those that don't RUN AWAY!

Re: how often do you bathe you amazon

Kiwi likes to get in the shower with us, and takes a little bath in his water dish pretty much every day, but neither soak him to the bone. He gets a good soaking bath about once a week. I think 3 times a week is probably good. They are clean animals, and frequent baths encourage healthy preening habits/cut down on dander. If you forget, don't beat yourself up about it either, you just don't want to go weeks on end without giving her a bath. They also sell special suction perches for the shower, so she can join you

I've never met a zon that didn't LOVE water.

Re: how often do you bathe you amazon

As often as Percy wants to (which is mostly every second day), and weather permitting, he gets a good misting and at least once a week, he is misted "to the bone" to make sure everything gets good and wet. I'm training him to come in the shower with me or take a bath in a birdie bath but thus far, he thinks these are both bad ideas intended to murder or main him. He looooves his little white mister bottle though . Pity my poor hand gets so tired from squeezing the trigger for half an hour!

Re: how often do you bathe you amazon

My girls get showers with the garden hose on a fine mist everyday. They love bath time. They get drenched, flap their wings thereby giving me a shower as well and then spend the rest of the day preening and playing.

Re: how often do you bathe you amazon

my birds take their baths them self,they just scream when they run out of water.
And let me tell you they use a lot!!!
Also never have a bowl of water in your hands when they are out of the cage,they decide you need a bath too.
