I just brought home two pita pintas earlier today. They are understandably a little rattled by the new environment, but I'm worried that they're not drinking. It's quite hot here, and I saw them panting a bit. They have a trough waterer (little tank in the middle and trough all around), but at the breeder's they had nipple waterers, which I haven't been able to install. Will they figure out the trough? Also, I added ACV to their water, but maybe I should dump this and give them plain water until they start drinking more reliably? I used a sponge to get their bodies a bit wet but wonder if I should do more. Any help appreciated!
