My bad!!!....

....my poor poor little booiiiiii!
It was time for my guy to have a bath or shower today. I have been puting it off because for some reason he just does NOT like to get wet. My Green Dino loves them..he'd take one everyday if I offered one up to him (Which I did early afternoon today) Amy knows whats' going to happen "next" anytime he finds himself on the shower curtain rod lol.
So the shower thing was out but a bath in the kitchen basin was in. The last few weeks he's been preening like heck.

David's sink is stainless steel with one of those squirty-squirter thingies.
The sink measures 5.5 in. deep/by 21.0 in.wide/by 16.0 long .
the stainless bit worked in my favor coz Beebers had NOTHING to sink his tootsies into and get traction to try and dig/pull himself up and out of the sink With the added fact of his sleeves being shortened a while ago ( so he wouldn't zoom around the place when it was medicine time for the bacterial infection he had. (BTW his boon looks perfect now! ) I used the squirty thing on him as he frantically tried to grab where the sink and leading-edge of the counter met. I kind of laughed and felt bad/sad,watching his feeties going 240 while trying to pull himself up and out with his beaky and getting nowhere fast.
He had so much preen gland oil on his back and arms that the water rolled off of him like it would from a '63 split-window coupe after just coming out of the paint booth lol.
Oh...and here is a picture of birdie muff stuff that !&5$* Amy turned his beak up...AGAIN!

Poor guy, but baths are necessary.

I also bathe my birds in a stainless steel sink, but it's deeper and doesn't have a squirty thing.
While Elvis loves squirt bottle baths, the other two prefer the sink with dripping water.

When I first got him..maybe he had been with me for four months,I bathed him in the kitchen sink at my place..the sink was porcelain or something or other..and it was VERY deep! I remember two or three times of him running around,yelling his fool head off,then he came to a screeching stop,face-plant himself to the basin,WAVE his arms madly and roll around like he had just eaten a box of chocolate chip cookies lol It was freaky lmao!
