    Question Baby bath question?

    So Charlie and Claire's babies are 36, 34, & 31 days old.

    Is it too soon to give them a bath?

    Baby #3 always seems to get stuff stuck to its feathers. And in its feathers. The other two don't seem to have this problem.

    I do kind of 'spot clean' when I can, but I think #3 needs a good bath.

    Plus, then I can have wet baby pictures!!

    Re: Baby bath question?

    When you say give the bird a bath, do you mean by using soap and water or just letting them splash around in the water?
    If you are meaning soap and water: I have nevery given my bird a bath that way. I don't even know if anyone does. I just give my birds a shallow dish of luke warm water and let them splash around in it. I don't think that they are too young to splash around in some warm water. Just make sure you give it to them in the morning or early afternoon so they have several hours to dry before night time. I even put a heat lamp over mine after they splash around just to dry them quicker.
    Hope that helped!!

    Good lord, NO on the soap!

    Some of my birds like to have their own baths, and some like to shower with us. Dee Dee & Des love to bathe in their own special little bathtub. Karma likes showers a lot, almost every other day. The other like them when they need them. Petey is content with the spray bottle. Charlie and Claire get a good soaking with the spray bottle in the shower when their dust gets excessive, or when they get themselves dirty.

    Currently, the babies do splash around in the big water dish. But baby #3 has stuff caked up in its feathers. Needs more than just some splashing around. It really needs a good soaking to work the stuff out of the feathers.
