Glass Water Bottle w/Locking Holder Medium
Solved my problem nicely!
I have 3 birds in separate cages. Sun Conure, Green Cheek Conure and a Quaker Parakeet. I could not use the cups that come with the cages for water because they would pollute the water very quickly and make a big wet mess outside the cage. So for several years I was using the the tube waterers with the narrow cup for them to drink out of. But they would take their food to the cup and make a horrible mess with wet food all over.
So I tried 2 of these glass water bottles. I put them next to the tube waters knowing they would investigate it and learn water comes out. After watching them used the glass waterer several times I took the tubes out and watched to make sure they would actually use it to drink. They did!
So I bought one more for the 3rd bird and did the same thing. He took to it fairly quickly also.
I love these bottles! Easy to put up on vertical or horizontal bars. And sturdy enough the birds can't move or damage it. I am relieved to know my birds have clean water at all times.

So much better than the others!
This is the only watering system for my Quaker parrot that he didn't chew or try to take a bath in or throw around. No mess no fuss. The Glass construction is great and Sammy loves it. Of course he loved making a mess with the other ones too. I would highly recommend for any bird. To clean I just got a bottle brush and Q-tips, easy.
I do use one of the small covered dish for the water with his vitamins in it but that is because I change that water every day and he only drinks a small amount of it each day. I got the small water dish and vitamins from Drs. Foster and Smith too. It is the same vitamins my Vet uses and recommends.

The Lixit Water Bottle is great!!
I have used Lixit water bottles for about 20 years. My parrot loves it and I love it. The water stays clean in the bottle and my bird can't splash water and take a bath in it, getting water everywhere. The bottle is made of heavy glass so your parrot can't destroy it.. Plus, the holder that is secured to the outside of the cage and holds the bottle is very secure. The bottle lasts for forever, not unless it falls onto a tile floor, like mine did and broke. So I had to purchase another one. It's a little pricey but well worth the money. Believe me, years ago, I wasted so much money on other bottles, not wanting to fork out the money for a Lixit, but in the end I saved money by buying one. They are well worth the money. A fantastic product.
