how often?

Hi all! I just started misting Henry and Pepper. They love it, but my question is how often should they be misted? Is every day too much? Thanks!

And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.

I don't think everyday is too much if they like it. Maybe with time you can just show them the stuff and you'll be able to tell if they are in the mood. I usually do that with baths a few times a week---take them to the sink and let them decide if they want to take a bath or not.

You could do it everyday if you'd like. It is actually recommend to mist them daily to cut down dust and feather dander. It also promotes healthy feathers and makes them preen. All good!

Whenever they want you to do it! I would do it daily as long as they're warm and they like it
