Parrot Shower


Parrotshower3.JPG (22474 bytes)Most parrots are from the tropics, a region where much rain falls.  It is reasonable then to expect that parrots love to take showers.  Ours really enjoy the showers I give them, specially the larger parrots.  In order not to waste too much water, I made a special "parrot shower" connected to our shower.  First I connected a "Y" in order to have the parrot shower connected with mine.  Note the shut-off valves on the main shower and the parrot branch to the right.  I can open and close either or both lines.
