Thank you Erin. That's what we're doing. The chick is almost fully fledged. What I meant was when can I give him a real mist bath? Since most pet stores sell them as young as 2 months old should I assume 2 months would be a great age for a real mist bath?I wouldn't mist bathe that young you could dangerously drop his temp. I use qtips and warm water myself or dip end of paper towel in warm water and wipe him up that way.
dont keep the bird under direct water in the shower. the bird will close its eyes to prevent water from coming in its eyes, and will look upwards grasping for air, water for sure will get in through his/her nose. so keep the bird of to the side or high up in your shower.Once my babies were fully feathered (around four weeks old) I started taking them in the shower with me for showers. So about that age is when you could start misting. I would start off with a light mist til they figure out what it is.
