    Ok so I did my research and concluded that my birds needed to go through a round of duramicin 10 in there water. Anyway I got them a 1 gal waterer for there meds as they have been on an auto water system. For 8 birds they are only drinking about half the gallon of water per day. Is that enough for them. It seems to me that 8 birds would drink more than that. I don't have a" normal" consumption amount to base anything on as I use an auto waterer.

    I use containers with nipples so I know exactly how much my 10 drink. A half-gallon per day sounds right to me since that's about what my 10 juveniles drink.
