Re: Water bottle or water dish?

I've used water bottles in the past when I was breeding. Don't think that the water won't be contaminated just because it's in a bottle! I've seen a few that got food inside the bottle. Some birds would eat and get a mouth full while licking that ball tip and while rolling it around gets some food within the water bottle. Not all do it, but some will! Just make sure to sanitize the bottle and get a scrubbing brush to scrub it out real good! I prefer dishes myself. But like henpecked, when I used to breed, I rely on bottles as there were way too many to give water to constantly. I can use my time playing with the babies instead of constantly messing with water dishes.
