Drying after showers?

Ok, stupid question #47.
After a shower, how do you dry your birds?
Blow Dryer? Towels? Just let 'em dry out natural?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Drying after showers?

Parrots body temperature is about 104 to 105 which allows them to dry quickly. It will happen naturally.

Re: Drying after showers?

There are no stupid questions. That is a very good one. I know some people that wipe their small ones off with a towel. I prefer to let mine dry naturally. In the summer, I put them outside on their perches to dry.

Re: Drying after showers?

Good question.
A bird dry's of naturally.
Here is South African during our winter months, I dry Mishka of with a hair dryer.
Very low temperature, she loves it.
Take care, and that of our feathered friends !!!!

Re: Drying after showers?

That is a very good question and I was just about to scan through the forum to ask a question about birds and bathing. Hugo hated being misted and didnt bath much - especially when he was sick. He now loves it!!!! We had a hot day that nearly wiped us all out - literally! A breeder friend of mine lost 14 parrots from heat. Anyways, I was in my flat with a sip and mist (its this really cool exercise bottle that you can sip and then mist yourself with a fine spray - its awesome for spraying your parrot) Hugo loved being showered and ever since that the vet says I must mist him as much as possible to get his skin and feathers back on track. How many times a week should you shower your parrot. Are there any products that you can put in and mix with the water to enhance feather health?

Re: Drying after showers?

I usually keep them in a towel for a few minutes to absorb some moisture and let their body heat build up and then let them dry naturally. I figure a blow dry would freak them out - and may damage their air ways.

Re: Drying after showers?

I dry Puffin off with a towel and in winter I use the blow dryer on low and from a fair distance away. In Melbourne our winters are cold but not always so cold you need heating so I always put the heating on anyway just before he has a shower and leave it on for at least 30 minutes after. In summer I use the towel to soak up the water and then let him dry off naturally.
