Eli's first lone bath!!!

Hey!!! I just wanted to share with you all that Eli, took his first bath by himself, with a little help from me, today. All I did, was give him the dish and throw some water on to his back. Then cuddle him and love him. He let me scratch under his wings for the first time in the 1 1/2 years t hat I've had him. He is such a special boy!!!! Maybe someday, when I can afford it, I will get a disposable camera and see if I can catch him in the act. He hinted to me that he wanted a bath by trying to take one in my milk. I fished him out a shallow dish and gave him a bath lol.

Does anyone have any suggestions on encouraging other birds to take their first baths? Loki seems interested and likes to sit on the edge of his bath, but he wont go in.
