Feathers turn brown when wet so don't freak out and let them dry and they will be fine

That is because they are wet. When they dry they will go the normal colour. Feathers, especially green feathers, go brown in appearance when they're saturated. That's great, it means his had a good soak :)

Good clean, clear fresh water heated to a bit above room temperature is all a bird needs for bathing.You can use a plastic plant sprayer to give bird a shower.

Do not use any products like this because everything you find in a pet shop is NOT good for birds and other pets. They sell what they sell as long as people buy, so be very careful about what you buy. Always call an Avian Vet and talk with them before using anything like this on your bird.

Wet feathers changed color
by: Tracie

The color you see on the feathers, are there by reflecting light. So when the feathers are wet, they change color. I suspect once the feathers dried your parrot had green feathers again.
