What do you use as your reservoir for the water bottles?

More water bottles!  Actually, I gauge it accordingly.  Two water bottles are good for about 15 quail filled once a day.  More than that and I'm too over-crowded or I add more bottles when the weather gets really hot.

I'm sorry, I worded it wrong, it was late for me.  I meant,what do you screw onto the water bottles so that your ducks and quail can drink out of it?  I can't quite tell what it is, but it sure does look handy!!

Ah...gotcha.  They are pop bottles with the waterer base that extends through the wire into the cage.  The bottle is held on by a wire spring.  I got them from Cutler Supply and they work really well.
