My African Grey is super picky and terrified of anything new. She tolerated this bath being near her cage with no issues so I hung it in one of her feeder door openings since she has a water bottle. The opening on the bath is slightly bigger than the feeder opening on a full size parrot cage so it’s perfect. My grey is small so that opening is just a tad bigger than her. Yesterday I watched her hop in and fluff up and throw water around like a toddler at the water park. She bathed to her heart’s content without making a mess. It was glorious. I am so glad I got this for her so now she can take a bath whenever she wants.
In the photo and video of the bath here, I was afraid that our African grey would be to large for it. I was 100% pleased to see that I was WAY wrong. It has hooks for cages that you are able to open up a side door and it has hooks to hang on the INSIDE as well in case like our new cage, theres not a way to hang it on the outside. I am EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THIS bath. Well well worth the cost.
For years I've been modifying, plastic containers, cat fountains, baking dishes.... nothing worked. You see, cockatiels love to bathe in the rain, and parakeets love wet greenery, like cut up lettuce or trimmed wheatgrass that is wet (plus rain to get them really going.) This thing lets me put a small fountain pump with the spray head attached without everything spraying all over the place when an overly excited bird starts throwing it around. I did put some snacks in it first to get them interested. I did fill it with water and the pump later the same day and the Tiels loved it. (. sorry, no pic)
You also could try putting some vinyl or duct tape on the bottom from the outside, if your bird is freaked out by the clear bottom, or just set the whole thing on top of the cage or inside to get started. the quality is great and the thing assembles easy. Just be aware if your cage has small spaced bars, the hooks will not fit, they are too big. I also had to adjust one of the hooks in order to get it on my "hagen vision cage". took 2 min and a drill. I am very happy with this product for my rather small birds, I am not sure how well it withstands the violent abuse of a curious African Grey.
Love the fact this is available! My grey still hasn’t used it but I have hope and will continue trying. I placed it over one of the breeder box holes and/or feeder door. Pro: clear - latches easily to cage - textured floor - good size opening - pieces secure together nicely - sturdy strong plastic Cons: I wish I could easily remove the base so it’s easier to fill and wipe out. Also wish the base could be secured alone - this would be helpful to get her used to going in the thing. She may be less scared if the top was open.
All in all I am so happy to have found this and my fingers are crossed she will be begin to love it.
My conure will not go inside. I've tried all kinds of ways to lure him in, but he wants no part of it. After a week and a half of trying, I'm throwing in the towel... Follow up - I contacted the company and they were more than helpful offering several suggestions. I will give their suggestions a try and see what happens.
My African Grey will not go into it I tried it on the outside of her cage, took off the holders and replaced them for inside use. (Holders are screwed on one side so you have to undo screws if you need to move them to make use of it inside the cage.) Would be nice to have two sets of hooks one for inside and outside of the cage use. She picked at the nuts and screw. Over all made well hard plastic that is clear holds about an inch of water across the bottom. I loved the idea of a splash proof bath. When I placed the hooks in the inside of the cage they did not allow the bath to sit flat so it was tilted up a little. Will wait awhile and try again.
