putting food in water bowl

Hello everyone. I have a 4 month old sun conure and I've had her for about 10 days. She has just started dipping her food in her water bowl and drops some in the water. I change the water as often as I can but I work all day and I'm worried about the water going bad. Should I try a water bottle? How do you get a parrot accustomed to drinking from a bottle? I feed a combination of pellets and seed and she eats a lot! Thanks.

Re: putting food in water bowl

Birds will do and try everything LoL
Thank goodness I have never had that problem.
A suggestion, place the water bowl and food bowl opposite sides of the cage.

Below is a link, sure you will find it of some use


Good luck

Re: putting food in water bowl

Agree about separating the bowls. Lucy's are at opposite sides of the cage. After she eats up, she goes for a drink and she's all set.

Now if the bird was totally bored, he would carry the food to the wate bowl

Re: putting food in water bowl

It's no real problem. A lot of my Mommom's birds do it. They eat the food too XP We just change the water frequently

Re: putting food in water bowl

I separated the bowls in my guys cages... it did no good. They're stuck in their ways of dunking and making soup. Good luck stopping it, lol. I just change the water as often as I can. If I'm out of the house for work or class or whatever and they trash their water, they're stuck with it until I get home. They also like to bathe in the soup mixture they've made. Yuck.

Re: putting food in water bowl

Same problem here. I have food on one side, water on the other side of the cage. *Both* birds do this to me. I've actually seen Tico with a pellet in hand--er foot stand there dunk and nibble. I guess they like it softened up and either lose grip of it or think they can get it out.

Re: putting food in water bowl

My Quaker does this all day long. Picks up a pellet, shuffles over to the other side of the cage, and dunks and crumbles it over his water bowl, repeat. I honestly wouldn't worry about it too much, just don't let it sit overnight.

Re: putting food in water bowl

Ah! I was wondering about this! My conure's food is ALWAYS a pinkish red because she seems to like to fill her food dish with pellets. And she also bathes in it. Eww! I tried separating but it still happens, and then she gets annoyed and pulls the water dish off the cage so it falls down. I've since put them back side by side and just try to clean it frequently. Silly birdies!
