I can't have the kitchen tab running without scottie nearly jumping underneath it. he has a bath pretty much everyday and sometimes even twice a day.
Little is not so much of a fan, but then again we have much to learn about him in general i think it depends from bird to bird but just to avoid itchy skin etc, at least once a week wouldn't probably be a bad thing

Re: Frequency of baths

I spritzed Basil my lovie every morning when we got him 4 months ago. He didn't appear to enjoy it but would brace himself for the spray and sometimes turn around for the other side (not always). I caught him trying to have a bath in his water dish the other day and promptly got him a proper lovebird sized bird bath. He bathed in it immediately but hasn't really used it since (other than to drink out of it, sigh). I stopped spritzing him, thinking he preferred baths to showers (just like some humans!) but now I'm rethinking that. Is he bathing enough if left to his own devices? Should I spritz him anyway? He's only had his bird bath for about a week.

Re: Frequency of baths

As he took the initiative with the bath why not try to encourage him to use it by putting a couple of toys that he likes in there?
