LOL, good luck with that. Mine bathe on occasion - one of three, that is. But generally they don't.

I put water in a seed tray (because silly bird uses it as hide out, after kicking all the seeds out) and it helped getting her cleaned up, but all in all, nope, not much bath time here.

When I had a smaller cage, I set it outside and hosed them down (with a gentle shower or mist), they didn't like it much but it was an easier way to clean everything.

If you have a hand held shower, you can do that in the bath tub, with better water control than form the garden hose.


Re: your original question though: pears are ok to feed, but like apples, take the seeds out.
Apples, pears, cherries and plums are in the same family (and the seeds all seem to have the same characteristic of containing small amounts of cyanide).
Interestingly enough, roses belong in the same family, but rose hips are completely edible....although the seeds have those tiny hairs we used as 'itching powder' back in the day.
