What type of grooming does a parrot require?

Birds need a certain amount of grooming and maintenance for their health. For healthy skin and plumage, they need a shower at least once weekly. You can get your bird used to a fine mist handheld shower hose for a few minutes with lukewarm water. To prevent the loss of your bird and discourage flying, keep the wings clipped. Beaks can get overgrown and deformed without regular maintenance. Many items are available at larger pet supply stores to keep the beak in a healthy state, such as lava or mineral blocks. Finally, the nails must be kept trim, which can be accomplished with some concrete type perches, although they can also be kept maintained with bird nail clippers and styptic powder in the event that the nails bleed during the clipping.
