    Yeah, it will take a few baths for her to come completely clean. There isn't really anything you can do about it except make sure that their perches are placed where they can't poop on each other.

    Not much. Giving lots of baths can make it easier to maintain.

    But on the plus side, you can make them all pretty! For christmas a long time ago I put red food dye and dreen food dye in spray bottles and made our cockatiel all christmasey colored

    When my two white budgies roll around in parsley and eat carrots, they are stained green and orange. It usually disappears in a week or so after constant grooming.

    Frosty stays pretty clean. It took awhile but I have the perches placed just so, that way no dropping land where she goes. My friend has a light colored budgie and her tail is always dirty. Not because she is going near the droppings but because the way she lets the droppings go they roll right down her tail. I have actually brought her budgie, Wilma over to the sink and tried to hand wash her tail but man I swear it will not come clean.
