I love my Kimchi. He is adorable and sweet and cute... but he is not the cleanest budgie I have ever met. His cheek feathers are a bit yellow with what i suspect is a bit of hand feeding formula? It doesn't seem to bother him, but I decided he was ready for a bath last night.
I started by luring him to his play gym with millet. He is a timid fellow, but millet will motivate him to do many things.
Then, while he chowed down, I gently misted him with water.
Needless to say. baths are NOT Kimchi's favorite thing.
However, a bit more millet soothed his wounded ego.
There was lots of disgruntled preening, of course. And more millet.
