Bird Bath Recommendations for Prevue F040 Flight Cage?
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.
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.
