    Don't use anything to wash your bird, except water. Shampoos and soaps can strip all the oils off your birds feathers. Plus birds have very sensitive respiratory systems and the perfumes and chemicals used in shampoo could damage your birds respiratory system.

    The only time I've heard of soap being used on a bird is dawn liquid soap for birds who have got covered in oil.

    I agree, shower with it, let it bathe in a dish of water but no additives.

    If you HAVE to wash your bird like some exhibitors do from time to time with white birds or birds that have messed on their vent feathers before a show - we use Johnson's Baby Shampoo. If you are not showing then as the others say take the bird with you to the shower. Get a shower perch and have fun! Even using spritzer bottle and misting your bird daily is good too.

    you can buy a product called Avix Rain. It gives a really nice sheen and helps remove build up of medicated products. but to be honest like the others said, just water is fine. Birds dont need soaps or conditioners... they have their own special preen glands to supply nature's own version which is much better


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Just an FYI

    Johnson's Baby shampoo is NOT gentle as commonly thought. It is gentle on EYES only, as it is high alkaline(which our tears are). High alkaline is NOT gentle on hair or skin...or feathers. It is actually quite harsh. Weakens hair, promoting breakage.Hair & skin need a balanced PH mid-range between alkaline & acid.

    Yeah, I'm not usually one for calling people out on forums and whatnot but the way this person types makes me think they're a troll. Words like "would", "that", "the" being misspelled/shortened but "question", "negative effect", "human shampoos" are all spelled perfectly. Just seems to me like a person with a decent grip on the english language trying to dumb down their typing.

    Honestly I don't know why people would troll a parrot forum, if you want to stir up trouble over the internet there are a hundred easier and more amusing places to do it.

    I've thought of trolling a parenting forum and talking about how I beat my kids and lock them in closets when they're bad. I must have been REALLY bored when I thought of that one.
