I've been putting the big lettuce leaves inside of Blueberry's cage so he can get used to seeing them and a flat bowl with lettuce and water on the bottom of his cage. It could take him weeks before he's brave enough to explore what this is, but he has already flopped into the bowl after a session of wild wing flapping. He went flying right into it. He jumped out immediately. Great suggestions!If your birds refuse to bathe try putting lettuce in water or if your bird still doesn't want to shower then try using a sprayer and sprinkling them with water.
