Why do birds need baths?
Bathing is very important in keeping our birds' skin and feathers healthy. Baths help to remove dust, loose feathers, parasites and other debris from a bird’s plumage and encourages birds to preen or groom their feathers. Many birds enjoy bathing every day, while others prefer to bathe only occasionally.
Bathing also helps to reduce stress and helps a bird’s body cool both from the inside and outside. As such, bathe your bird during the warmest part of the day, and provide lukewarm or room temperature water.
How to install
Gently attach the 2 halves of the Vision® Bird Bath until you hear a 'click' sound which means the bird bath is attached properly and securely. Then fill the bird bath with fresh, clean lukewarm or room temperature water till below the bath entrance to prevent spillage.
Hook the bird bath over a horizontal cage bar on either the inside or outside of the cage, or place it flat on a surface for birds to access the bath.
Some birds will jump right into a bath, while some birds prefer to bathe by splashing among wet plants and vegetation like their wild cousins (especially finches, canaries and budgies) To encourage bathing, add some freshly washed vegetables or sprouts to the bath water for birds to splash on.
Do not use shampoo or detergent in the bath water. They remove the special oil that birds produce to preen their feathers with.
Let your bird choose its preferred way to bathe. Never force a bird to bathe.
