Why on earth would you ever consider using anything but safe water in a spray bottle on your birds?
Budgies clean themselves by using the oil from their preen gland and preening their feathers to keep them clean and shiny. You do not need to wash or bathe your budgie.
You can offer him a bath and see if he likes it.
You can also try misting him lightly with room temperature water to see if he prefers that.
Some budgies like to play under a faucet with a very slow gentle stream of water coming from it.
Some budgies prefer to rub or roll on wet leaves such as kale or romaine lettuce.
Some budgies love water and others do not show any interest in baths, showers or "bathing".
If your budgie prefers not to bathe or shower, that is just fine.
The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being
