I use separate drink fountains in each kitbox, but is it ok for two side by side pens to share the same fount?

Most bacterial infection is passed through the drinker. I have had healthy rollers so far, but choose not to have them share.

Like Keith said. It is much easier to keep something contained if the need arrises. Do yourself a favor and buy another waterer. Joe

i do have separate fountains, and i did that to contain possible disease. i basically set it up this way for that reason, so i agree with what you've said, and basically answered my own question at the same time.

Do you ever mix your birds or switch them from cage to cage? if you do than it won't matter if they drink from the small container, because if any of them have something, the others will also anyway. also if they are only seperated by wire with birds on both sides, virus knows no boundries.

Lew,
Yes I do switch the birds, but not every day. Drinkers are cheap. It is just one little thing that I do that could help if I ever have an issue.
Mine are free. I use 1.5 gal bleach bottles with 2"h x 3"T rectangle holes cut 2.5" from the bottom. The 1.5 gal bottles are wide enough that the pigeons can't knock them over. I screw a cheap door stop into the cap to keep them from roosting on the drinker and crapping down the side.

I use cat drinker for the kit boxes and each kit box has its own. I built a box attached to the back of each kitbox with a top and front doors. I cut a square hole about 2"X6" in the back of the kitbox so that the drink area is in the kit box. The box I built that is attached to the back of the kitbox is to protect the drinker from the sun. This way will save space inside the kitbox.
