Hello everyone! Iโ€™m very happy to be here! My name is Mango and Iโ€™m almost 6 months old. Iโ€™m a very messy eater as I look for seeds that might be hidden somewhere between all this quinoa and other veggies that I donโ€™t like (quinoa is delicious tho ๐Ÿฆœ). I arrived to my forever home this past Monday but I feel Iโ€™ve been living here since I hatched, I like everyone! Mommy is a new bird owner and still figuring out stuff so any tips would help ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Quinoa IS seeds! High protein seeds.
Youโ€™re right!! ๐Ÿ˜…
I was referring to those other bird seed they sell. I bought the Sunburst Gourmet Blend the first day but after some research I found out they are not so good and Mango only wants to eat those ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. Tried a few things, and cocked quinoa (which was recommended elsewhere) is her favorite so far. I mix a very small amount with the quinoa, and other veggies like carrots, broccoli, alfalfa sprouts, etc. daily and Mango makes a huge mess looking for just those packaged onesโ€ฆ
Any suggestions?

Thank you!!
I was wondering, maybe you know some bath tips, my human has tried a few ways but Iโ€™m not sure how is it done. Maybe I need to see her do it first ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฆœ.

Albie likes to bath a couple of ways .

He has a cat fountain (a white one with a spout ) thay he enjoys , he likes a wide shallow pie dish , and to have a running tap with my hands held under it. He likes his water to be ice cold . Im sure ive posted a couple of videos of him if you scroll through my post history.

He also likes to bathe in birdie soup too . Gross bird .

Welcome to you both!
Keep an eye on that cage! As Mango gets more adventurous, he will be a quick study on opening those doors!

I just saw your posts about the baths ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ Albie is just too funny ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜
So far I have tried the dish, the trickle water, the spray/mist water bottle, different water temperaturesโ€ฆ so far no success. However, whenever I go to the sink and itโ€™s nearby starts getting all fluffy and shaking, comes to me and while holding from my shirt reaches for the water but only kinda like tastes it and shakes while climbing away and repeat ๐Ÿ˜‚ several times ๐Ÿคฃ.
I just ordered the cat water fountain, letโ€™s see if that one works.

I need to get a cat fountain; I think Willow would really like that! It sounds like the perfect bird bath.

Does it plug in or is it battery-operated? And where do you keep it that he has access to it all the time?
Its plugged in (not all the time , only when he shows interst in bathing) and i keep it on my fire place

Huh. Maybe I can put a request for one on freecycle and disinfect it. Percolating with vinegar should kill any cat germs I think. Or I can see how much they are online.

The dish would have to sit next to Willowโ€™s cage or he will be scared of it! He is quite timid.
