Recently my cockatiels feathers around his beak have been getting stained brown.
I think it’s just from his food but i was wondering if anyone had suggestions for me as to how to bathe him..

He is very scared of hands and practically refuses anyone to touch him with their hands but is okay with sitting on your arm etc. (he’s been like this for over a year since we adopted him) we think it’s because he was possibly being handled wrongly by his previous owner as no matter how much we try bonding and helping him get over his fear, it doesn’t help.

His fear of hands means that we can’t bathe him properly so we use a spray bottle to kind of bathe him but it’s not the best.

I’ve attached an image (he is wet but you can see). Any suggestions?
