Okay guys, got some bad news. Kiwi drank some fish water. He was flying around in my room and he perched on the fish tank. Usually he doesn't go for the water. But today he drank some! I hadn't used any fertlizer and had just added water but I am still concerned. So far he is acting normal so I am not sure if he was affected. Let me know what you guys think.

do you have any medications in the tank?
if not, don't worry about it.

if you have chemicals/ medications, monitor the bird and call a bird vet.

I agree. How many of y'all have dogs who drink out of the toilet or puddle outside or drank from a hose or swallowed pool or pond water as a kid? Everything will be fine.

Not being funny but I have drank my own tank water to prove a point .... yes alcohol had a play and yes it was childish but hey I’m still alive and I reckon humans are more likely to be sick than other animals that don’t usually drink clean water anyway , most animals won’t drink bad water anyway will they ?
