Your right if it is ok for us it should be ok for the birds. I think
it was just a way for the water company to tell me it was not their
fault that my birds died.
Still no word from the vet. The birds that have died so far were 5
and six months old. They were my hand fed babies. I'm hoping they
were the only ones infected. I grabbed a bottle of water and added
apple cider vinager to it instead of using the water purifier from my
tap. I never thought it would kill them.
