    My budgies won't drink?

    Hi, I recently bought four budgies. I have already had them for a week and this is my first time keeping birds in general. They love eating but for some reason I never see them drink (and yes, I am home a lot lately so I can look at them pretty much 24/7, and I never saw them drink). Their water dish is right beside their food dish, which they visit often. The water I give them are always pre-boiled and cooled down and I don't think there are any minerals added. I clean their water dish once a day at the same time everyday so it's almost always clean. Is this normal or am I just paranoid?

    It is possible they may be drinking at night. Are the poops runny or watery? If not, then they are drinking water along with eating. I would think tbery are drinking. Usually it can take up to 4-5 days for therm to begin to drink and eat seeds.
