SPRAYING AND PREPARING BIRDS FOR THE SHOW BENCH.

THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE VERY EASY TO FOLLOW

how to prepare birds for the show bench.

Step 1: the first thing to do is to make sure the bird is clean,either spraying or hand washing the bird.
i spray my birds every other day with a little warm water ,to this i add i teaspoon of glycerine and rose oil to i litre of warm water and shake well.
i will now explain how to hand wash your birds.

1.IMMERSE THE BIRD SLOWLY IN THE WATER

2.SQUEAZE A LITTLE BABY SHAMPOO ON TO SHAVING BRUSH.

3.BRUSH INTO THE BIRD,TAKING CARE NOT TO GET SHAMPOO INTO BIRDS MOUTH OR EYES.

4.WHEN THE BIRD IS THOUROUGHLY WASHED,RINSE OF IN SECOND BOWL OF WATER.

5.THEN RINSE AGAIN IN THIRD DISH OF WARM WATER MAKING SURE THE BIRD IS RINSED WELL,AS WHEN THE BIRD IS PUT BACK IN STOCK CAGE IT WILL START TO PREEN,AND ANY SHAMPOO LEFT ON YHE BIRD ,IT WILL INGEST IT AND WILL HAVE UPSET STOMACH.

HAVE SOME CLEAN DRY TOWELS AND DRY OF THE BIRD AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.


FINALLY,CLIP ALL CLAWS AND BEAK,AND MAKE SURE THE FEET ARE CLEAN.

ALL IS NEEDED IS A GOOD SPRAY GUN TO SPRAY THE BIRDS.
IF HAND WASHING YOU NEED 3 SMALL DISHES OF WATER,1 WARM WITH SHAMPOO,I WARM WITH JUST WARM WATER,AND 1 WARM FOR A FINAL RINSE,TO WASH THE BIRD I USE A SHAVING BRUSH,THIS IS REALLY SOFT AND DOES A GOOD JOB.
