My Pip doesnít really seem to like the spray bottle. I give him a shallow dish with water, but havenít caught him using it. He does like to use his water dish to splash his head sometimes.
On a separate note, he also like to stick his head in his covered water dish and make noises. He seems to enjoy the echoing sound.

Monty HATES spray baths. I only forced him to wet his head by lightly grabbing him with a towel and dabbing water on his cere and top of the head because he is very dry and dusty. I wouldn't do this if I wasn't sure he would forgive me after. Monty will wet his butt but that's it.... he's just not a bather.

That's okay too... if corby wants to bathe it will be obvious he likes it, if he hates it then you may need to back off a bit.

Gigi wouldn’t take a bath and we really wanted her to take one to help with her pinnies. She did NOT like the spray bottle in the house. However with the warm weather here in Florida we started taking her outside in her cage and sitting with her, the very first thing she did was jump in her water bowl and take a bath. I am thinking the AC is too cool for her to take a bath. It’s set at 76 degrees. She doesn’t mind me misting her here and there outside. We have her a bathtub but she still prefers her water bowl. Her pinnies did get better and better with the dampness.

Hmmmm.....I have a little birdie bathtub. I wonder if I took his cage outside and put a little bit of water in his tub if he might go in... he has pin feathers and since he won’t let me hold him yet I can’t help him with them.

Oh boy, all my birds absolutely HATE spray baths. They seriously either freak out completely or go total agressive defensive. I gave luck with the little Lixit (?) Bath, it's kinda aqua colored and attached to the cage.
Most likely if he wants to take a bath, he will get his n his water dish. You might find him in there .... Who knows maybe he's already doing it when you aren't looking!!
