    When mounting an exotic parrot do you still wash and degrease the same as waterfowl, Tumble and dry as well?

    Thank you! I figured it to be the same but like you said with less fat. Thanks again.

    Yes if it's a hard-feathered parrot like a macaw, Amazon, conure, or basically any parrots that aren't cockatoos.
    I would recommend that you don't wash large cockatoos unless you absolutely have to. It can be done, but their feathers are extremely fragile and hard to groom back together once they've split apart.
    Also, sometimes parrots can be enormously fat. It comes off pretty easily, but you will have to wash and degrease it just like a duck if you get one like that.
