Anyway, my wife found it on a clearance sale for $20 and bought it. Jules fell in love with it immediately both for baths and just to perch and chill on. We accidentally broke the first one and Jules moped around so much that we had to replace it. It just broke our hearts how much she kept looking for it once it was gone.
Hahaha!! Truly spoiled. I would have done the same thing.

Looks like Jules loves the bath set-up to have. You went through a lot of trouble for her----$20. was reasonable.
I have the one Mrs. JP3 has----only it's in the cage for each bird. There is a clear dish I keep on the table when they are out, but Ollie uses it for drinking. Seldom interested in bathing in it. Guess it takes time.

$20 was the clearance price of the original, replacement price was $80, but now we how much she loves it, it is still a good price.

That picture is beautiful Ozzie!

Levi won't bathe in anything I've offered so far. Occasionally he will bathe in his water dish. Our lovebird bathes in a Frisbee, and I've had Levi watch Buddy in the Frisbee but then he won't go in. He's finally starting to enjoy showers though!

Just when I think I've heard it all! Now I would never in a million years think to try a frisbee.

Paulie starts his bath in his water cup and then he will let me spray him to finish. His water dish is kind of small.

Dima enjoys being spritzed with a spray bottle, but so far shows no interest in any other forms of water.

Ozzie, I love that picture!

Huey bathes in his blue plastic water dishes every day..... well he calls it bathing... I call it splashing around flipping fluttering and coming out dry, lol.

I also have the blue bath the others have and so far no luck.

A water glass with ice was a hit for some time but now no longer.

Huey is not fond of spritzing, but if I do spritz him he will ho to his water dish for his routine.

Jules is a lucky bird that likes her baths.
Ollie likes me to hold the cup (the kind of cup in Mrs.JP3's picture has) on the edge of the kitchen table while he goes back and forth on it with towels around him.
I may place it outside his cage and see if he likes it better that way.
