Most birds have been through a heavy molt and just in
general preen for hygiene. Most every day in good weather I
use a plant mister to give birds a shower with 1/3 aloe
juice/2/3 water. A spray bottle is good for a single bird
but not directly at it. spray with fine mist up and over.
The AJ is good for healing and comfort. I get it at Walmart
in the pharmacy dept.
I am so glad you are getting him out of the cage. Not sure
how long you have had him but that has to make him feel
better. I open cage doors in the morning and guys/gals come
and go on their own between cage and playgym next to cages.
Do you know about feeding veggies? Will watch for your
answer on that one.
Good to have you here.
