Is it safe to give water from the faucet to pigeons? Thank u all!!
Do you have another source of water?:confused:, if all you have is treated water, your only other option I think is bottled. if you have only a few pigeons I would give them non treated water, but if you have a loft full of pigeons then you would have to use your tap.

That depends on where you live.

If you have well water, and it isn't treated or softened you can use it, but it is always best to know exactly what is in it-you can take a sample and have it tested.

If you have city water, and it is fit for human consumption, you can use it on your birds. Again it is best to get a sample of it and have it tested.

You can give any water to birds IF it has been treated with reverse osmosis and pre & post filters, one that is made for human consumption.

I like give my birds bottled water, as well as water that has been purified.

Thank you spirit wings and trees gray for your inputs. Our only source of water is from the City/County Sewer Company but what I do is get water from the purified water from the faucet. Actually I'm a beginner when it comes to pigeons. Right now I have 4 young birds which me and my friend bought, two of which were still squeakers and the other two is on their first moulting stage. I haven't given them any medication yet because I don't know where to get them. I'ts kinda' hard to get pigeon supplies in our area. I buy wild bird feeds from Walmart and also "Gravel and Grit" to help for their food digestion. Yesterday I tried giving them carrots but they don't seem to like 'em. Probably its new to their sight and taste. I also give them water with apple cider once a week, bath once a week also.
Another thing is, I don't ever let them fly since i'ts not allowed in our neighborhood. I think that sums up everything about me and my birds. Hope to hear from you again guys and to those who might want to comment, you are very welcome...God bless u all!!!

If you have a computer perhaps you can google pigeon supply, there will be a few to pick from to get all the things that you need, the feed you can find at a feed store, If you look in the phone book perhaps you can find one and ask for pigeon grain or they can order it for you, I would use that instead of the wildbird feed, depending on what is in it you may need to add legumes,and some protein/vitamins. If you have a hard time finding one, ask a horse owner, they usually know where to get feed. you may have to go some miles but if you only have 4 the bag will last a long time.
