How do you provide your cockatiel with water?

Along with providing fresh foodstuffs at least twice a day, you will need to provide your cockatiel with fresh, clean water twice a day to maintain her good health. One technique is to give fresh water in the morning with vegetables and fruit and to replace the morning water that evening when you remove the perishable foods and give your bird seeds or pellets. The water cups tend to build up a dirty film, so take care to wash and rinse them thoroughly.
