I don't see why it would be bad, however I wouldn't have him on any supplements like that unless a vet recommended giving them. Most supplements that go in the water aren't very effective

I personally don't like giving extra supplements unless recommended. You can easily over-do it which can be very dangerous

Also Ice might not like the taste so he could stop drinking the water!

Every once and a while, why not. Just don't give it consistantly!

I honestly wouldn't give human D drops. You don't know if the dose is appropriate for birds or the preservatives, etc. You can shave a little cuttle bone on top of your bird's food or buy already powdered cuttle bone. It's great for birdies that are laying eggs.
