First of all, this could happen to anyone, trust me, I've had birds since I was 6 (37 now) and I still do stupid things and afterwards I usually have the "Now that was you being a moron, wasn't it?" talk with myself...The fact that you realized what you did and are obviously very concerned about your bird does make you a good first-time Parront! I hate to say it but a lot of people wouldn't have given it a second thought, so you're already a great deal ahead...

As already mentioned you need to listen to his breathing and if you hear any wheezing, crackling, or see him struggling to breathe then it may be irritated air sacs and he needs to see the avian vet immediately. I'd keep an eye out for him scratching at his eyes, his nares, his feet, just look for him being generally irritated. Watch the skin on his feet for redness, peeling, any signs of burns. As already said window cleaner isn't horrible, it's mostly soap and water, so I think you'll probably be OK. Thank God it wasn't a cleaner that had bleach in it or any type of really caustic bathroom cleaner or something like that. Giving him a good long bath is a very good idea to try to rinse any residue off of his skin and out of his eyes/ears. I think he'll be fine, you washed the bottle out very well so there wasn't much cleaner left in it at all, but better safe than sorry. If you notice any change in him at all get him to an avian vet ASAP...

Re: Misted with unsafe spray bottle

Gave her a loooong shower she seems happy, it's funny how i'm more worried about her health than my own.
I just feel really bad because I got a clear picture of her being misted in my head, wings out, big baby black eyes staring at me, head tilted slightly back just loving being misted with chemicals.... lol?
I put my ear right on her beak for a good 20 seconds (didn't care if she took a chunk off I probably deserve it) and couldn't hear her breathing let alone other noises. Feet look ok, bare skin to inspect I couldn't find..

Here's an eye pic after her shower (would love to know what the grey/black colour is on her head/cheeks and little on body) that is how I bought her home

Re: Misted with unsafe spray bottle

What a sweetheart! Everything looks great, love the pic!!!

Since, she allowed you t get your ear good and close. See if she will allow you to place your ear against her chest. This will give you an opportunity to hear her heart. Do not try to count, just listen. The goal is to over time get a feel for the sound of her heat rate at different states. Not important at this point. As time goes on, you can develop a reference as a way of checking in on how she is doing.

Regarding the feather coloring, just call it baby color, her next molt will get you much closer to her Adult Colors.
