Hi Mandi

Is that peach in the towel? She looks so cute I wouldn't really know where to start with trimming Mamadous nails so it's a vet visit for that.

They all look so cute in the photos and I do have a little chuckle to myself after they have been showered they look like what the hell as just happened.

Awww I love them wet, so cute - Ozzy had a bath yesterday and afterwards he had a little mohican.
I used to have to towel Floyd and file his nails which was hell and extremely painful with several chunks missing from hands etc.  I said I would try to do it differently with Ozzy, he's such a good birdie, I get a wooden nail file and file his nails while he's sat on his Java, as long as he has the other end in his beak he really doesn't mind  :biggrin:  Lots of treats and cuddles afterwards.  :cheekywink:

I'm quite lucky with Jack and his nails. I do them as he's hanging on the bars of his cage and he doesn't mind it at all. Half the time I don't even think he notices!  :rofl:
He loves having the bottom of his feet stroked so I stroke his foot as i'm clipping his nails  :rofl: :rofl:

Mandi, Where did you get that perch their standing on in the bath? That looks brilliant. I'm trying to find other ways of showering jack as he hates the spray bottles. He didn't seem to mind the watering can so much in the summer outside although that's a no go indoors  :laugh:
