Cold after a bath?

not sure what I'd search for to find an answer to this, so I'll just ask, and sorry if it's been asked before.

What do I do with my bird after she has a bath? She feels so cold. D:
She doesn't really seem to mind, and is making all kinds of happy croaks and making a nest out of my hair... so I guess she's fine?

Re: Cold after a bath?

Many bird guardians use a hair dryer, including me. It is not harmful to the bird or I woud not be using it.

Re: Cold after a bath?

I read that you can toss a hand towel or small blanket in the dryer for a little bit and then wrap them up in it Not as effective as a hair dryer, but who doesn't love warm laundry?

Re: Cold after a bath?

If they take a bath early in the day when it is warm, I leave mine alone. Shivering is their way of warming up and it is also the best time for them to preen their feathers. Mine love really cold water in their bath and will normally jump right in as soon as I give them fresh water. They will then spend about an hour preening and fluffing their feathers.

Re: Cold after a bath?

If you have a half naked bird that's been plucked and you keep your house on the cooler side you would think differ then to let your bird shiver....

Re: Cold after a bath?

Well, no I do not have a half plucked bird and my bird room is warmer than the rest of my house. Since my birds have bath bowls in their cage, they take baths at different times of the day, but I've never had to dry them unless one gets wet later in the day when I don't think they have enough time to dry before they go to sleep. Then I wrap them in a handtowel and get them as dry as possible before putting them back in bed.

I did not gather from the OP's post that his bird was plucked or his house cold.

Re: Cold after a bath?

I said IF! Not saying you have one or the poster have one. I adopted a half plucked bird! Saying you would think differ if you had one to let it shiver!!! Read it clearly!!
