My budgies always end up pooping in their water bowl despite it being strategically placed so I'm looking for a bird water silo that works for horizontal bars (I have the Vision M01 cage). I got a popular one from amazon but it didn't work since it was for vertical bars. Any help is appreciated :)

How do you strategically place your bowl? If it's at the highest point, with no perches above it, there will never be any poops in it, guaranteed. I used to have this same issue, and then I studied bird architecture for 2 years and found this solution. So yeah, if the bowl is up high and has no perching spots above it, the budgies will never poop in it.

The water bowl is on the floor of the cage with no perches around it but the bowl is divided into two, so my birds like to stand on that middle divider to drink water (and end up pooping in the other half of the bowl) even though the rim of the bowl is shaped like a perch. I'll consider getting a normal bowl that can be put high up in the cage, that might be easier than finding a horizontal water feeder.
