Learn how to care for your pet bird.

Bathing and Grooming

Birds groom themselves by ‘preening’. They use their beaks to remove dirt and dust from their feathers, and they also make sure all their feathers are lined up so they can fly properly. You could also gently spray your bird with a very light mist of water.

Some birds like to bathe, so give your bird with some water in a container for this purpose. This can be a great treat on hot days!
