"Wet Bird" February Photo Contest 2017

January
"Wet Bird" Post your photo!
*A little change, if you have multiple Parrotlets you may submit one photo per bird.

Thanks to everyone who participates by posting photos. Several people asked for a monthly contest and you all are sure making it a lot of fun.


Some general Rules:

1. ONE Photo entry per bird. No swapping photos midway.
2. NO PHOTO SHOP allowed, please stick to the theme but creativity welcome!
3. Photo must be of YOUR Parrotlet(s).
4. You may VOTE on multiple photos (multiple choice), but you can only submit your votes once.
5. Please add a title to your photo for voting purposes. Example: "Pop Corn Face"

Polling options only go to 10, so an additional thread will be created every 10 entries.
As usual Ill get the poll up when we get some good options going

Bigboy is on a distinguished road

I eagerly await all your photos. I went through all of Bigboy's pics and I do not have a single one of him wet. Which just goes to show what a brat he was!

Ha. I've never seen Kingston wet. He just thinks he is. Nichi is a bath champ though. He should take lessons.

I will have to check to see what bath pictures I have with Jules. They are hard to take because she is moving so much during her baths. Her previous owner said she liked to take showers but with us all she will do is hang with us when we take showers. Early on with us she would not take baths at all until we developed a ritual that involved me dripping water on her with my fingers. Later my wife found her table top fountain/ spa that she uses regularly and our water dance ritual went away. Oddly just today she initiated the water dance ritual again asking for me to drip water on her for her bath. It was fun but I was in my home office and we made quite a mess.

Bogie would not take a bath until one day, I wet my finger and flicked water in his face. All of a sudden, he went NUTS! He went into a dance and I flicked more water on him, then he jumped on his water dish/bowl and went to town!

It was funny to watch him figure out how to bathe for the first few times. He would try this wing... no.. that didn't work. He tried another angle...yes...that worked! He figured it out. He loves bathing now! WITH cold water! Go figure! Brrrrrrr!

Don't they sound funny when they are wet and they fly to your shoulder? And you get wet!

Ollie takes cold water baths, too.
I bring out his round bath dish and hold it on the kitchen table with half the round edge on the table with a soft towel. When I say "take a bath" he may or may not be interested.
I have to encourage him, or he doesn't bother bathing in his cage. He likes me to be there praising how good he is doing when he bathes.
