Default Re: Water bowl or water bottle

I used both with mine. They all preferred bowls but had a tendency to burrow underneath them or bury them with substrate so I always kept the bottle there too as a back up. At the moment Bailey just has a bowl and to stop him kicking substrate in I have put some large flat stones beside it and round it. This also means he wears his nails down every time he drinks which is handy. I have a foster-ham too at the mo, a Syrian called Billy who initially had both a bottle and a bowl. His behaviour was a bit disturbed for a while as he is a rescue and he kept attacking his bottle spout in the middle of the night and waking me up so he just has a bowl now and has adapted to it fine. He doesn't dig much so as long as I always refill it every day and pick out any substrate that's got in he seems to be fine although if I go away I'll put a bottle back in just in case.

i put a clean rock in the water dish, it keeps them from dunking their butt all the way in, it weighs it down more and makes less surface area for the hamster to contact by accident. befor the rock i saw my girl geting a wet butt often.
