Default Bird Bath Recommendations for Prevue F040 Flight Cage?

Hi All,

Our budgies currently get a once or twice a week bath in a glass baking dish that is filled with about an inch of water. It works great because it has plenty of room for the birds to splash their wings around and get totally, sopping wet. The downside, of course, is that after they are finished with their bath, they then sit on the perches above it and well, you know what happens.

As we begin to get into the hotter months, we would like to provide a more permanent bird bath that is a little less likely to get pooped in, and we like the idea of the type that hangs on the side of the cage.

We have a Prevue F040 flight cage (I'm guessing that a fair number of people here also have that cage), and like the idea of a bath that can be permanently affixed at one of the smaller side doors. Looking on Amazon, though, I can't tell if they are compatible with this cage.

Does anyone have experience with any bird baths they can recommend that work well and fit nicely on side doors of this model of cage? Our birds are able to come out of their cage for most of the day, so I suppose having it on or in the cage is not absolutely mandatory, but I feel like they would be a lot more likely to find and use it if it were.

Thanks for any insight anybody can provide.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

I have both the F050 cages and F040 cages.
I, personally, use the Lix-it bath and simply afix to to an area inside or outside of the cage where there are no perches above it. The bath portion screws off the holder very easily so you can empty, clean and refill it quickly.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
