Birds, in general, lay eggs and dont sit on them till all or most of the batch has been laid.
This can about be 5 to 10 days from the 1st egg.
When most or all the eggs have been laid they then sit and incubate the eggs.
For kakariki the generally accepted rule of thumb is around the 21 days from 1st sitting, not laying.
I say "general rule of thumb"....it is not uncommon for a little of 30 days for all the fertile eggs to hatch.

Do you mean feed the chicks or parents?
It is best to let the parents feed...if wish to hand tame, this is best done after weaning..
Parent do need good diet

the feather loss on her belly has gone but now we seem to have another problem.
we are moving house and we need to know how long it takes for the chicks to be independant what are the concequences if the nest box has to travel. They will be in the car for about 2hours. Is the stress of the move likely to kill them or for the mother to dis-own the chicks?
many thanx step-toe pappion and scabby(mummy and daddy)xx

We have moved nest boxes to new avairies, others have removed chicks for several days and re introduced with no issues.

Kakariki seem to be very resilient
Moving and travelling for several hrs....could very well be pushing the limits, maybe???
I couldnt say "yes ok" or "cant"
It would depend on the parents nature, thu at a gess, I would put the odds at ok.

The more mature the chicks, I would imagine , better the chances.

If there is no alternative, I would make the move, but fully realising there is a possiblity of loosing the chicks, or having to hand feed.
Either way, before making the move, fully accept loosing them, the chances are they will lay again.....
And if all goes well, thats a bonus...AND very important information to add to the knowledge about kakariki....Something I would pass onto wild Conservation people.

Cheers
Steps
