Using Water Bottles?

June 5, 2011 § 5 Comments

I would love if you could respond whether or not you use water bottles with your birds rather than water bowls.  I am considering water bottle training Lola because she takes serious delight in making a mess of her water bowls.  Usually I am home often enough to keep them clean, but for those days that I am not, I just want to be sure that she always had access to clean water.  So what do you guys do?  Feel free to answer the poll and leave your comments.  I would very much appreciate it!

I’d also love to know what brand of water bottle you use, if you use water bottles.  I get the feeling that Lixit is the most common, but the only one they make that comes with 100% stainless steel hardware is the huge 32 oz one, which I think would be overkill for Lola.  Or perhaps somebody has figured out a way to connect them to the cage without having to use the springs or attachments that come with the bottles?  Please share if so!  Thanks in advance!

    I use both waterbottles and bowls. They both drink from the waterbottles, and I leave the bowls in because they like to dunk their food and sometimes bathe in it 🙂

    As for tying it on. I only have the spring thing for one cage, the other I just used a piece of leather cord to make a bracket.

    I think water bottles are totally worth it if you need to offer fresh water throughout the day and you’re not home.

    I use a Lixit waterbottle for my macaw and a Superpet for my budgie. I’m not sure what spring you are talking about but mine just comes with brackets and there is actually 16oz with the brackets like my macaws.
