My new budgie does not seem to drink any water at all. And I am almost alway's watching it. We took it and the water dish out, and it drank some, but it hasn't drank anything at all today...how long can a budgie go without water? What should I do? How do I know if my budgie may be dehydrated? Also it is always regurgitating food up for everyone, when out of its cage. We are not sure if it is a male/female. It will do it for my other 2 budgies and for us (my siblings and I). I thought they only did this for mates and babies?...

about the drinking water thing... my new hen after a week i think still doesn't know where her water is... although i've shown her so many times! lols. what i've been doing is just a few times during the day offering water to her. sometimes she'll have a drink sometimes she won't. that way i know she has been offered water and is getting it when she needs it.
Ditto on the water. They can get a lot of moisture from their food.
I've watched Plooper feed BeBee and its a pretty clean process; as long as the budgie isn't getting it on him and trying to feed specific things (ppl, other budgies, toys) I'd say it is ok. Is he young???
