The water consumption in Japanese quails was studied in 2 replications by using standard 1.5 l vacuum water troughs. The average water consumption per bird was found to depend on the laying intensity and was between 73.67 g (low intensity and stress) and 129.45 g (high laying intensity). The average water consumption per 1g of body weight varied between 0.334 and 0.421g and depended on the same indexes.
