    Hello, today I went out and bought an all purpose sprayer... the mist can be adjusted.. and today I gave her the first misting.. she seemed to enjoy it even turned around so I could get her wings I think :) If anyone on here uses a mister could you please share some info... like how often do you do it? Does the time of the day matter and I do not have another cage so I do it in the same one but my house is very warm so it dries pretty quick... iss this alright>>

    I mist about once a week.

    With Kiwi I mist him in his cage. He seems to be less agitated when he's in there being misted as opposed to being out like Buster is. I like to mist them in the afternoon about 1 when the house is nice and warm (my house gets a little cool at night so I want to make sure they're dry before bed.).

    and how thouroughly do you mist them? Like how many consecutive minutes do you mist them for? should they be dripping wet???

    I never mist mine until they're completely wet, just until they look damp.

    Hi i agree once a week is usually enough and aslong as you do not get her to the point she is soaking wet then she will be fine.

    When mine are going through a molt i usually spray them more often as this helps the old feathers come out and the shafts of the new ones to soften allowing the new feather to break through easier.
    I mostly give them a bath during the warmer weather that way they can bath when they feel like it..
