Hi I have had a breeding box in with my kakarikis for a couple weeks and they have been checking it out mating ect ect but recently my male has been VERY aggresive and there was blood around the cage so i put him in a separate cage and late last night she laid and egg but it was laid on the bottom of the cage and it cracked. So could anyone tell me why the male is being aggresive please

This is not normal behavour...
We have had a couple instances of this with a male introduced to our avairies from another breeder...
What we put it down to, is like all species occassionaly one get a rouge bird
We tried alsorts of things, isloation etc etc
At the end of the day we put it down
When one has only a couple birds this is a very hard choice to make
When one has several flights/pairs it becomes a nessessity.
Other than that I have no other answers

Sorry
Steps.

All you can do is try..but be aware that by islating him as a 'punishment' is not the soln..from his piont of veiw it is frustarain which could ecentuate the behavour.

If He is still aggresive toward her would she be able to rear the chicks helself? (If any eggs are fertile)

Dont know why he is agressive, but the fact that you put the breeding box in will have somethihng to do with it. The hormonel changes may have triggered it; you mentioned he was fine before?
I understand that things are better now, thats great!

It would not hurt to also add another nest box for the cock bird to sleep in. I have found this can work in your situation.

When caring and dealng with animals one , espec in the early days comes across individaul 'situations' that are out of the norm for the species.
often ther is no 'across the board' soln

Both the sugestions above I can see the reasoning and it is sound.
And combined even sounder.

Generaly we always have 2 nesting boxes...occassionally the female likes one the male the other, thu eventually the males does end up likeing the box with the female in

Thsnks guys
The input from other members is always appreciated, espec when it is different to mine thumb

i only had them separated for about 3 days and they could not see each other and i think when she was getting into the nest box she squished the egg she was due to lay another egg friday and again tonight i will check when i get home from dads i hope she doesn't lay ant more eggs on the bottom of the cage or squish them i believe it is very stressful laying eggs so i dont want to to keep laying and them all cracking because she would keep laying them to replace them wouldn't she? I will post again to tell you if she has succesfully laid anymore eggs
