I've seen waterers used on Polish cages at poultry shows. They just screw onto the top of a plastic bottle. Anyone know where I can order these? I think they would be great for my Seramas, so I'm not eternally cleaning out shavings. I can't get mine to get excited about a rabbit bottle or a lixit bottle, so I thought I'd try to find these.

Thanks!

you can put them on the insides of pens, too! Just support the bottoms. I use little shelf brackest, but a friend sets a chunk of wood under them.

Yep, Ebay has them, Cutlers, etc. tons of places. All around $1 a piece. I just go with the dozen. They're very handy. Easy to keep enough around you can change them out for cleaning. We pop the plastic pieces into a hot water bleach solution and let them sit and put fresh ones on. You can get stouter/longer lasting bottles, but we often just buy new after a bit.


Freeze partially filled bottles in the summer and top them off before putting out. The birds love them.

We've used them with up to the 1 ltr bottles. Certain brands work better than others...Coke products and some of the store brands. I prefer contoured bottles personally. If you go with a 2 ltr you'll probably need to put them inside as the bottle diameter might be too big to allow the drinking portion to extend into any enclosure. The *NEW* founts are longer than the older white ones with the springs.
