Water:

Your birds will need access to water 24 hours a day. In a cold climate, maintain a constant water temperature of 20 degrees centigrade for all groups of birds. Ostriches like to scoop and as a result of the feed in their beaks, the water trough gets dirty quickly and therefore needs cleaning regularly.

 

Birds need constant access to water as this will affect their consumption of dry feed. Water too cold or too hot will affect their water consumption and often result in reduced feed intake.
