Bird baths have always been symbols of cleanliness. In our homes, we treat our birds with kindness and respect, but what about in the wild? How do birds that live in really clean areas get the baths they need? Why do they have them? Why do we need to have bird bath containers? And why should we even consider a bird bath for our feathered friends?
One reason is the simple act of giving. When we come home after a hard day at school, or when we find ourselves homesick, we often take a long, hot shower to relieve the stress. This relieves our bodies and spirits, but it also rids our bodies of the natural toxins that are in the water that our bodies naturally excrete. Birds that regularly bath in a bird bath will be healthier and happier. The chemicals in the water to act as a cleanser to the feathers and skin, which can make them look a bit greasy from time to time.
Another reason is the protection of our feathered friends. Like us, birds need to bathe to get rid of the bad bacteria in their skin and fur. Like us, they can become ill from exposure to bad bacteria and parasites. By bathing them regularly, we are giving them a safe place to be and removing the bad things from their systems. This also helps prevent the disease from spreading among the birds that may live near or in your bird bath.
We all know birds like to splash around. They love to fly and dive in the water, and they certainly like to splash around a little bit. Taking baths with them helps to keep their fluffiness up, which in turn helps them to stay healthy. Bathing helps to remove the dead skin cells from the birds, and using bird bath sprays or bird baths helps to keep the water clean and fresh. It also keeps the rest of the bath moist so the birds don’t dry out too quickly.
Bathing is also good for the health of the bird. Like us, they need to exercise to stay healthy. But sometimes it just isn’t possible to squeeze in an exercise or fitness session into the day. So, when they’re not chasing bugs, exploring, or perching, try taking a bath with your birds. They will probably love it, and it can help them to get all the nutrients they need at the same time.
You may think that bird baths are messy or dirty. And you’d be right! They can contain chemicals, dirt, and grime from the bird itself, as well as bath water, bird bath water, or bird seed. If the bath water is particularly dirty or dirty from the bird, you may want to use a special bird bath cleaner that is designed to clean bird bath water.
Bathers also get bitten, scratched, or scraped if they are not protected from the elements. Even people with perfectly soft skin and feathers can get nicks and cuts if they step on a bird. So it’s important to have a nice quality bath protector to slip over their wrists, ankles, and legs to keep their bodies safe from the sharp ends of the birds, as well as any other objects that the birds might try to grab. Most accessories also come with a detachable head cap that you can place on top of the bath water. This makes cleaning the bath easier and prevents small particles from falling into the water.
So there are lots of reasons to get a birdbath. And now you know a little more about why you should get a birdbath. Why not get several bath packages to use throughout the year? It’ll save you a ton of money, and you’ll get to enjoy the beauty of birds all summer long.
