May Flock Together Feature - Bathtime Special!
Bathing is an important part of our birds' general grooming process. It allows birds to keep their plumage in good condition, by softening dirt on the feathers and skin and encouraging preening.

Especially in small, poorly ventilated spaces pollutants - such as dander, dried droppings and skin/feather mites - can be a major issue.

it's because i'm weak
too scared to give up
i've been hit to ground

i just want a warm heart
i want a safe harbor to rest in
when the waves are high
i want a nest to rest
when the wind is hard
i want a hole to crawl into
when the rain hard
i want a warm heart
to rest near when the winter is cold
i'm just screaming
in the darkness
in the rain
in the snowfall
Why is no one hearing me
i just want a friend
which i feel safe with
It's all i want..
Is it so hard to get..
I still wonder..
why do i keep on shouting..
Love.. is all i want....
