okay... everyone has their own suggestion as what to add to the water for their pigeons but lets go to the root and let me ask you... Would you actually drink the water that you're giving your pigeons? I know I would straight out of the backyard faucet. How about you?

No definetly not, the meds we give our birds are not for people.

What i meant was before you put anything on it. I'm trying to figure why so many different advice with water and all the additives given by fanciers. I know there are places that water supply is pretty bad.

Any source of water deemed fit for Human consumption is fine for any Animal, in fact ours is real hard... Gee, a good source of Minerals... Dave
I gave mine bottled water because I hate our tap water here. Our tap water taste bitter. So depending where you are, you can drink it. Some area have nice tap water taste. I drink that without any problem.

Obviously back in Asia you drink well water. We have no running water there for a long time. But because we live near the beach, it taste saltier.
This is what I'm trying to get at... some tap water are considered hard due to high mineral contents and some down right taste funny that you won't drink it. Some area have tap water chlorinated, some are put through an osmosis or some other type of filtration.

I'm amazed that people give their birds bottled or purified water. Is your water source that bad?

With water sources being different from each area.. is this why some fancier use so much vitamins, meds, etc for their birds?

My birds down right love drinking their plain water... they seem to consume alot more compared when I have ACV, medication, vitamins and/ or electrolytes mixed in.
