Making a water fountain for our birds is very simple. We just need a cheap water pump for aquariums or one with a solar powered panel, perfect for outside aviaries! For safety reasons it’s better to cover the cable from the possible bites: we can get a plastic tube and hide the cable inside. We just need to put the pump in a big bowl and cover it with water: we can decorate it adding stones inside. If the water spills too much we can get a plastic rubber hose and cover the pump’s nozzle so that the water will be diverted to the bottom of the bowl like a small shower. The sound of the water is a great auditory enrichment and it usually encourages the birds to bath.
