Most of my birds are PMV survivors. Once recovered, they remain handicapped to some extent for life. One thing I noticed though is that baths calms them and helps their recovery. They enjoy enormously bathing. Even the ones that act stressed when I place them in the bathtub, in a matter of seconds stress is forgotten.
I fill 30~40 mm water in the cat litter box and of course always supervise them.

They look so happy!

Thank you for the information and tips, I'm making notes of everything to do with PMV survivors that will help with Sammy's recovery and post-recovery periods.
Thanks

How many birds do you have with PMV?

Do you keep them all in one large cage/pen together or do they have separate quarters?

They do look to be enjoying their baths.

I have 10 pigeons and 4 doves PMV survivors. I keep them in cages single or paired with non-PMV birds. Mating them with partner not affected with PMV has great influence on affected birds and their recovery.

Watching them bath is such a pleasure for me. Smile
Then even the most serious of them forgets every dignity and places that funny goosy look on the face.

Plamenh, the photos are priceless and I can only agree regarding the funny faces they make. Even our Pete, who is the patriarch and really is a proud pijjie who has an image to ruin becomes childish and infantile when he is sitting in his bathtub! Oh brother That's too funny

Happy Phamenh-You are such a good guy for helping these birds. I'm sure their daily routine is somewhat time consuming. Happy

Sure it is, but my day is long and with good planing there is a time for everything. Smile

When should I start giving Sammy the chance to have a bath?
The way his symptoms vary from day to day it looks as though he's still got some way to go.

You can offer him bath anytime, just let him choose when he is ready and be around to supervise him.
My last rescue (clever boy) came to me in the very beginning of the illness. Bit puffed, sneezing and with these wet faeces. Other than that he had nothing, no other symptoms. I gave him vitamins and immuno-boosters and he pulled over for little bit more than three weeks. When birds have good nourishment and access to clean water PMV is like flu in humans, comes and goes. When they starve, because cannot compete with other birds, then it can be death sentence.

Beautiful pics Plamen.

Our's also love bath time. Elmo particularly is shakes / shivers furiously when placed in water, but after splashing him a couple of times he goes nuts :)

Wonderful photos!
I don't know of any pigeon that doesn't love bath time and it's always a pleasure to watch.

Hehee, the first time I gave my birds a bath the water was too deep and it was more like a swimming pool than a bath! They were floating around looking like little ducks. Laughing
