So ,I bought 2 days ago 2 kakarikis(Jolie and Maya) ...and the Man to the Petshop told me that they are female...but not sure and I don't know they are still not so active allways and they eat a lot :)) and they are silent most of the time...are they still shy or???.....they come to my hand and this is not a problem but they are silent still :)and i want just to know if this is normal?!
The second problem....I let them allways the food to them(because i see they eat often) or just i take it from them and I put the food when I see that they are hungry and to deserve it???
And one more .....I let them to fly yesterday out from them ,,house,, and I saw that they fly without orientation and crazy .....not soft and carefully ....so how to make in a way to ,,learn ,,them to fly soft and nice and not later to break a neck or something else?....the man from where I bought them told me that they are 8 weeks ...so still babies a little bit :)...i think...so please help me somebody!
the Man to the Petshop told me that they are female
Not being familar with kakariki and both being the same sex, it can be difficult...post a front on pic of the head and beak (use the attachment function at the bottom of the post when reply)
and they are silent most of the time.
young birds tend to be more quiet
I let them allways the food to them(because i see they eat often) or just i take it from them and I put the food when I see that they are hungry and to deserve it???
Keep a vareity of fresh veg/friut avalible at all times in small quantanties...we supply fresh food morning and evening and fruit during the day...the amount you will establish by how much and what is left over next time you feed...
See this thread on what to feed
I saw that they fly without orientation and crazy
This is due to them getting their bearings around the room, and also they are young. While they are new to the enviroment and young if they hit a mirror or window, at slow speed the chances of damage is slim...it is when birds are in full flight as adults or paniced that mirrors and windows can be a problem....they learn very quick.
Net curtians over windows is a good idea.
the man from where I bought them told me that they are 8 weeks
Have a look at their eyes, is there a red or orange iris? this devaloped about 2 weeks after they emerge from the nest and are ready to learn to fly.

And like I know they are 2 sisters birds ,like this also the man told me...but I'm sure that they are not both females...finally tomorrow I will make also pictures and then you can help me .
And what I want to say...I gave them till now ,per day a little bit apples...and I saw ---they make soft kaka s is this normal..my friend told me that they make soft kaka,ok not so sof ,but it is....from the fruits...so now I'm scare to give them so many fruits...somebody told me that is good to give them 2 times per week fruits..is this true?
Thank you very much and for your help answers,
Thank you very much for your answer .Yes I love my ,,girls,,-...finally the man told me that they are 2 sisters...and can I know in witch pictures is the male(the man!:)))??? because also I want to know this.....and sure is a male?...then i must to change the name,is too late?
I put again some picture with them.....and to see clear if one is male and one female...because to know then to change the name :)))))...is so funny.
Hi Tory i would say it is the one you call Mayo. It looks to like it has a bigger beak and more red on head. Just for interest sakes how much did you pay. They are worth thousands of Australian dollars here in Australia. Cheers Kev
Maya...or Mayo :)))))))...she is the silent one ,she kiss me and she is soft,smiling to me and very shy......and the another one Jolie,she is a little bit more selfish....she bites me ,and she is not soft ...also more Jolie she sing in the morning and i see her like she is the man :)))
I paid for them 550 € with all the house of them...a big house and lovely .....a little bit expensive here in Germany...but they are just beautiful and they are from one mother .You think they must to be more expensive or more cheap?...why you pay so much money in Australia for this birds?
Help plsss...my kakarikis they make soft kaka(somethimes they make good kaka,and then they make normal kaka...is changing to them !)...from what can it be?....I don't give them apple or something green...they eat normal birds food ...so it's strange..if somebody can help me ..is this normal?...they have 10 weeks old ....and also they are not so active all day...they eat and sleep and fly sometimes there......so this is normal acting?...also they don't ,,speak,, so often ...to make so much noises.Please somebody help me ..i have them about one week(i bought them)
