Your bird’s immunity levels lower when soaked with water, making them more prone to illnesses such as a cold, and they could also accidentally inhale the water. Soaps and shampoos can also irritate and dry out your quail’s skin and get rid of the important oils on their feathers.
This is why you shouldn’t randomly decide your quail needs a bath when they actually don’t. If your quail seems smelly to you, there’s usually nothing to be concerned about and it’s a poor reason to bathe your bird.
