Default Water/Food feeders

I see there is a product review area but there wasn't much on there.
Is there a section that has products you suggest?

I have bought so many different feeders, and the birds still find a way to use the water dish as their bath. Even when I give them spray bottle baths.
Has anyone on here found super awesome feeders that help block seed as much as possible, and keep the budgies from getting into the water, but still able to drink? I've heard of using bottle feeders like for hamsters and stuff, but I am worried they would figure out how to get the water out okay.

Thanks!

Have you considered putting large flat dish at the bottom of the cage with a tiny but of water in or even seeing if you are able to attack a bath to the cage for them? As they seem to want to bath often, it might be something they need.
My budgies have their own special plate where I put wet lettuce on for them as well as other treats.

As for seed getting in the water dish, I just keep my water dish higher and further away from the food dishes. cage I have one side of the cage where there's no perches at all near the water dishes just a perch near by, under each water pot. All the food pots are at the bottom of the cage so this isn't an issue.

I have been thinking about buying a bath to attach to the cage. I could do either? But will that stop them from bathing in their drinking water?

I use a water/food dispenser for my birds water. It keeps it nice and clean. Here's a link to what I mean

I find they work really well, and you can find them in most pet stores.

I think you could try a dispenser like CC has suggested. I have bad luck with these types as the water always leaks.
You can only try to put a bath in and see if it helps. You won't know until you try.

I use a water bottle with my little boogers . It saves me constantly cleaning out the water bowls and so far my brats haven't found a way to leak the water everywhere **fingers, toes and tail feathers crossed that this luck continues**

Some people seem to like these water silos:

JW Pet & Insight Water Silo

Personally, I don't mind my birds bathing in their water dishes - I just change the water out more frequently.

This is another option which can be used for either food or water:

Clean Cup Feeders/Waterers

With regard to a food container, if you don't have female budgies you could try this:

Caitec Seed Corral

You can also use one of these as a feeder depending on how the small feeder doors on your cage are set up:

All Living Things Bird Bath

JW Pet Bird Bath

Hi Sarah

I have two (as I have the 2 male budgies) of the usual clip on type birdbaths, that just sit on the grate on the floor of the cage. I use them as seed dishes. It gets them using the bottom of the cage, they cut down on the scattered seeds/hulls and the bath roof is a good poop protector.

For bathing, I use a shallow steel dish on the floor of the cage each morning. If I left it there, they'd probably drink from it.

For drinking water, I previously used the type CC linked but had issues with them leaking. I added open dishes for a while. I considered the rabbit/rodent style bottles but have had issues with the little ball jamming with a pet rabbit in the past. I am currently using two of these:
https://www.amazon.com/Imac-Tweety-F...c+Feeder+100ml
(Touch wood) so far, they have been great. Never leaked. I know that stainless steel and glass are considered more hygienic than plastic, but this bottle is at least made with curved seams so no nasty joints where germs tend to accumulate. Only suitable for vertical, budgie sized spaced cage bars though.
