Hello everyone. I was wondering if someone can tell me which water would be the best, the water in the town I live in isn't too great, I wouldn't recoment humans to drink it so I never give my fids tap water. I have been using spring water for a long time now and was just wondering, what would be the purest form of clean "chemical free" water: spring water, distilled water, or drinking water. I just assumed that spring would be the purest form of water and that drinking water would have the most chlorine and stuff in it, but thats just my assumption, anyone have any knowledge of this?? Thanks <><

I hear often that it does depend on where you live if the tap water is safe or not. Seems like in your area, it probably isn't a good idea to give them that. I'd suggest any kind of bottled water, then. I'm not sure specifically which kind. I'm sure you can research which brand is most "chemical free" and whatnot online.

I know that you also should keep using the same kind of water and not switch (at least not too often). The tap water in my area is very good, so I give my birds that. So I don't think that for me it would be a good idea to randomly switch from tap to bottled water. The same goes for when you move your birds from one area to another, and the tap water is different.

I'd personally use bottled water judging from where you're from. Lucky the UK has some great water so I've never had that problem but. I'd go for bottled just to be on the safe side.
