How often do I need to treat my bird for worms, mites or lice?
For birds housed outdoors, particularly those in contact with wild birds, it's a good idea to keep up a regular worming schedule of every 3 to 6 months. Unlike cats and dogs who regularly come into contact with other animals and environments, indoor birds are less likely to pick up birds in their day to day lives and can often be wormed less frequently. For the best advice to suit your bird's needs, ask a vet with a special interest or extra training in avian medicine.
When it comes to mites and lice, it's best not to use any treatments unless your vet has diagnosed the problem - used incorrectly some mite and lice treatments can make your bird unwell.

How do I give my bird a bath?
Providing your caged bird with the opportunity to bathe to keep their feathers clean and looking their best, with the added benefit of fun and enrichment! Each bird has their own preference for bathing, some may be happy with a shallow bowl or basin of fresh water placed periodically inside or outside of the cage. Others may prefer misting from above using a spray bottle, rubbing against soaked branches or leaves or even a human shower on a gentle setting. For shower loving birds try a shower mounted perch.
Whichever way your bird likes to bathe, take care to avoid drenching them completely and keep shower time for the warmest part of the day and allow plenty of time for them to dry out of drafts to help prevent chilling.
