Checking out the new bath

Birds are funny.

I bought a new bath for them since I dropped the old one and cracked it. It’s the rainy season here and everyone in my flock takes bathing very seriously during the rainy season (metal roof + heavy rain = bathing conures). Normally they will literally jump into anything that looks wet

Everyone took turns staring skeptically at the new equipment (I might have brought home a “bird-eating” machine after all ). Stanley & Bindi tasted the water from the safety of my arm but no one even dipped a toe in. I’m not one to push things on them, so we just played with stuff nearby and ignored it.

I’ll leave it running for a few days near them, maybe they’ll try it out eventually.

I guess if they don’t use it, the cat will get a new water bowl 😂

Re: Checking out the new bath

Love the pictures, and the captured skepticism !!

What is this cool fountain??? Is it made for parrots? Can it stand your parrots putting food and seeds into it????

It’s just a pet water dish off Amazon. It’s probably not able to tolerate parrots putting food into it (I imagine it would clog up pretty fast). Their old “bath” was also a recirculating water bowl and they loved it.

Re: Checking out the new bath

Appears the new bath is in birdie "quarantine." I bet you'll soon see them gleefully flapping and enjoying a new source of water.

Re: Checking out the new bath

I'm voting they will take to it as so as it is verified not to be radioactive, or doesn't eat them.

Re: Checking out the new bath

Bath verified for not being radioactive ☢️

Figured out the issue - the water stream was too quiet. Put my finger into the water stream so that there was running water noise.

*Snap* Bindi put on her sultry “I’m gonna dive in” look....and in she went 😂

Re: Checking out the new bath

Hi there. Your post made me investigate other recirculating water bowls, and I bought this one for Salty, who loves the sound of running water, but is afraid of our black sink. This one look like it has a bigger bowl area, easier for him to splash around in. Thanks for the idea!
