Default the water bowl

Hello everyone.
I am curious if my Budgies will find and use their water bowl? they have a new much bigger home many toys and thru trial and error with placement of food, water, toys and perches I think I finally got it right.My hens now can get around their place with some fun and they seem to really love their place!!!!

The one thing I had to do was relocate their water bowl.You can see in the picture here where it was and that was a bad spot because above it was a perch that I cant move, and I don't want their water bowl to turn into a toilet. I didn't think that where their perch was and the water bowl that messes would wind up in it but I was wrong so I had to move it....

Where their water bowl is now there is nothing above it and it is right next to their food bowl that they use all the time. But I have not seen them drink BUT I know they know its there because they tilt their heads to watch me change their water out. They know""" something is there"" do they know its their water??? I don't want them to not drink. I moved their water bowl 2 days ago and I don't see evidence that they are using it. Although I thought this morning that I saw a seed or two in the water bowl. Also, there are 2 plastic cup holders attached in the spring doors but I never EVER see them use it I had millet and food there and it sat for days un eaten should I put water in there?? maybe they will use it?? their perches go all the way to those plastic food cups but for some reason they dont like going down there. they wont even go there for millet maybe over time they will ? or when I am not looking??

Should I be concerned??? they are so happy and finally I got their place organized so they can play and get around easy.

And for those that have been following my posts, Oz has really come along way since Charlie has arrived!! Just yesterday when I was cleaning their home,Charlie flew out to check out my lap and see what I was doing and well, Oz got all excited when Charlie flew out that SHE DID TOO!!! that is the very first time I EVER have seen Oz want to even come near her door let alone fly out!! and she flew right next to Charlie. So, I think they are very fond of ea other...

Don't worry--they definitely know where their water is. Most birds drink when nobody is looking, many people don't se them drink at all. The little bits of "evidence" you've found in their water proves they're drinking! No worries

Their "palace" looks grand and I'm so glad Oz has come out of her shell a little bit!

Hey, stranger!

I wondered where you'd been hiding. It's good to see you back again.

Charlie and Oz are looking great and they've obviously become good friends if Oz actually followed Charlie out of the cage yesterday That's super news and I know it must make you very happy.

Star has alleviated your worries about the water dish and I agree with her so you can stop worrying about your babies drinking now.

So, now that we have that little matter settled....
more pictures please!!

Mark you are one of my favourite TB members, the true delight you get from your budgies is obvious and I love reading what you have done and how they are going. It is an excellent home with all that they could possibly require! Yes they will be drinking and I am so happy for you that both of your budgies are becoming a more settled and loving flock with you included. Keep up the great work and as randy said YES we love the pictures

Default took this picture today

Thank You Starling Wings, Deborah,Randy and Cathy for the reply!!! all very good here I think Charlie needed Oz as much as Oz needed Charlie they seem so happy with ea other they have very few arguments and usually Oz is so passive she just lets Charlie have her way.They sleep, eat, play and preen each other most all day and nap together too!!! and they both seem very very happy.
They even play tug of war with their toy its fun to watch!! and lastly, they both still let me handle them and Oz still loves the scratches from me! I hope that stays as they get older, its ok if not as long as I see 2 happy budgies!! I took these pictures this morning 2 happy girls!!!!
