Pros:Inexpensive, sturdy, easy to attach, birds love it

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: If you want to give your bird the opportunity to enjoy a bath, the Penn Plax Bird Bath with Universal Hanging Clips is the one I recommend


I have had parakeets for many years and some of them have liked to get in a bird bath and splash around. They have baths that you can put inside the cage or if your bird comes out for a fly around the house that you can set out but the Penn Plax Bird Bath with Universal Hanging Clips is a nice one that can hang outside the cage so you do not have to get your bird out or worry about trying to fit the bath inside his cage.

Description of the Penn Plax Bird Bath with Universal Hanging Clips
This bird bath is perfect for a parakeet sized bird or smaller. It has a solid brown color bottom with a no skid surface so your bird can stand firmly without sliding around while he has his bath. The top of the bird bath is an amber clear plastic that you can see through but it's not completely clear. I guess this is to give the bird the idea that he is somewhat protected. The entire bird bath is not completely squared off but generally measures about 5 inches tall 5 inches wide and 5 inches deep. It is a little narrower at the bottom and top and flairs out in the middle. The opening measures 3" tall by 4.5" wide. Again it is not completely square. The opening is completely in the top piece and on the bottom that faces inside the cage there is an edge that functions like a perch.

Attaching the Penn Plax Bird Bath to your cage with the universal hanging clips

Under the perch are two wide tabs that slide onto the side of your birds cage at a sliding open door. To attach slide open the door to the cage and slide on the cage bars so the bath is outside the cage and the long tabs are inside. At the top are two adjustable clips that you can clip to the top of the sliding door when it is open. This fits rather securely but I would watch your bird when you have this on the cage to make sure it stays secure. I have never had a problem but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Coaxing your bird to use the bird bath

I start out by just putting a little bit of water in the bird bath and trying to coax him in by floating some lettuce in the water or you could put a spring of spray millet near the opening. If your bird is curious he will sit on the perch and look around. If you are lucky he may step inside and have himself a bath. I have had parakeets that jump right in and have a great time, and others that act like it is not there at all. My current parakeet is a little shy with anything new so I am still trying to coax him in. If your bird does not like it at first just attach it and leave it there as long as you can. It may take a week or more of daily exposure to the bird bath for him to finally take a dip but once he does you will get quite a show. It is really fun to watch and the birds seem to enjoy it too.

Thanks for reading my review
