My first budgie Bilbo absolutely loved to bathe, he would bathe in a bowl, he would go under a trickling tap on my hands and have a shower, and if I bought a fresh bunch of herbs, like basil and washed them he would roll around in the wet leaves. But Basil just looks scared of anything wet.... But he's only young so maybe it just takes confidence. We shall see :yum: It is cold here at the moment so I reckon once summer warm weather comes he might jump in then. I still put his bath on cage once a day just to help him get used to seeing it x

Neither Pico nor Paco likes to bathe in a bowl or tray of any sort. Instead, they look at us like we're offering them a giant drinking bowl, take a sip, and walk away. Pico will almost start to bathe with a fine mist from a spray bottle, but Paco just looks like a wet and annoyed bird. Both actively preen themselves periodically throughout the day, so I'm not worried.
