    Do they have water deep enough to clean out their nose in? They need deep enough water to dunk their heads and clean out their nose available regularly.

    Good advice on the water. I would put them in the bathtub and let them swim. Be sure to keep an eye on them. Towel dry or use a hair dryer to get them dry.

    Yes, have deep water dishes so they can dunk their heads. I use rubber livestock bowls. I also add water to their crumble so its soupy and their whole bill gets wet.
    No need to blow dry them. Mine swim and then I put them back in their house and they get busy drying themselves off. I also have the heat lamp on and they dry off in minutes.

    Good luck!
