    It's not easy getting a parrotlet to bath---some are good about it, and with some it takes time to figure out their preference.
    I have a shallow bath attached to Ollie's cage with cold water in it at all times, and he uses it to either drink or if he's brave, to bathe in it. Twice I've had to refill it in the morning, he'll be on my shoulder and will look at it willing to try a bath. Then he goes in while I'm holding it in my hand---guess he trusts me. I've never seen him bathe in his cage. He's one year, so he may change a little over time on his bathing preferences. Best to you!

    Every bird is different. All of my guys have preferred just shallow dishes (like cat dishes) to bath and drink from. It usually takes them a little bit once in a home to settle down and feel comfortable with bathing. Otherwise, lightly misting with a bottle (aim for just above their head) sometimes helps. Sometimes just even turning on a faucet with a towel on the bottom of the sink. I had one that liked to sit in the shower with me... he would even run down my arm and just sit with his eyes closed under the spray of water. I've even seen some birds rub themselves up against a wet towel or even a lettuce leaf clipped to the side of the cage.

    I would try a variety of different styles and see if there's a preference.
