- Clyde, Quaker; Freddie, tiel; Rocky, umbrella cockatoo.
Rocky spent a lot of time preening today (his second day with us but first full day) and I'd like to offer him a bath. But I don't know what he might like. He's very afraid of odd things and I know he's been mistreated in the past. I moved a stool this evening so I could sit nearby and talk to him and that terrified him (not me, the stool). I don't want to do the wrong thing and destroy the trust I'm trying to build. My tiels love to be misted. My Quakers are okay with that but also like a dish of water. I don't have a dish big enough for Rocky (I'm going to look for one) so I thought I'd try misting if that's something 'toos like. Warm or cool water?
