    I use them on up to 24 oz. coke/pepsi product bottles. Forget about the overpriced filtered/spring water bottles, because the mouth is to short

    Welcome [​IMG]
    Because...if you need one thing, you need at least 4 or a dozen of the same things for raising birds. That and the fact that the shipping charge is the same for 3 as it is for 12. Joe logic, is hard to explain. [​IMG]

    Shelly has found a deal for a single purchase of a dozen pop water bottle waters! That's is a deal on 12 Shelly. Thanks for the heads up [​IMG]
    I just normally order 4 or more, as well as egg cartons and other things, so the shipping charge is aggregated, but that's just me. I'm also not to proud to beg-off some of the stupid "Shipping charges".

    How do you teach quail to use them? Having failed to teach the dog (who is suposed to be a smart animal [​IMG]) to use one I would hate to buy them and have them sitting in a drawer somewhere.

    Quail figure it out [​IMG] If they are curious they will peck at it and voila! water! [​IMG]

    the type that just pushes onto the pop bottle the water is visable to the bird not much to teach there . the bunny waterers you squeeze the bottle it puts a drop on the metal tube then the birds find it
