My Birds My Foods & Supplements Always treat your pets as family members. We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures (Quran 21:107) There is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing (Quran 6:38)
Ive just getting a small 250ml bottle of F10 now ive been told you can use it in drinking water if yes then what is the safest lvl to 2ltr of water can anyone help please
Have also heard this myself, but if you were wanting to use it this way I would get in contact with the makers of F10SC for the correct usage.
However, a lot of members use Apple Cider Vinegar in their water to prevent stomach problems. My breeder in fact recommended it to me. But it must be APPLE cider vinegar not just cider vinegar and should be the original source so it has like a sediment in the bottom.
Further information if you are interested one of our members/breeders Barrie Shutt has further info about ACV on his website click here
Apple cider vinegar is a solution of acidic acid produced by fermentation of apples. Apple Cider Vinegar contains cholesterol-reducing pectin and the perfect balance of 19 minerals, including potassium, phosphorus, chlorine, sodium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, iron, fluorine and silicon.
The cider is made from apples and then turned into vinegar where acetic bacteria convert the alcohol in the cider to acetic acid. (info sources from Barrie Shutt's Website)
Hope that helps

I use the normal dilution to clean the water bottle & nozzle without rinsing. I do give the inside of the bottle a small squirt and the fill it up with water, so by the time they drink by it is very dilute. I don't actually put any in the water. If the water is changed daily and the utensils cleaned then there should be no need for additives, providing the water source is clean and free from parasites and things.

OP Normally I would agree about "no need for additives". But my birds fling stuff around and the odd dropping does get into the water when I am not around to notice, so the aviclens is a bit of peace of mind for me.

Ah!, I was forgetting not everyone uses enclosed water dispensers. I have not read up on Aviclens, so is that similar to F10 and if some foreign body did get in the water would it safeguard the buds from drinking soiled water?
I've just bought some F10 but wondered how to disinfect wood? Squawk has a swing with wooden blocks on it which he loves playing with. How do I use F10 on it? Do I soak it in the solution and let it air dry, or wipe it? Squawks had scaly face mites so I want to make sure there's none in the wood to reinfect him.
