All birds drank the same average amount of water over a 2 day feeding schedule regardless of water treatment. When birds are given free-choice water, they obviously over-consume on a feed-day, but drink little on an off-feed day. These data suggest the need for water restriction of skip-a-day fed birds, although special attention on feed-days rather than off-feed days will be most advantageous in preventing wet litter.

That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.
