Hi I am new here and new to the Kakariki. I have today bought a kakariki, after being persuaded by the pet shop owner that they are easy to talk and tame, after getting home and looking on the net I find out that it is Rare for females to talk tame or even whistle. is this correct? also I am not sure how to tell properly if it is male or female it looks like a young bird, but I am just not sure! it is a lovely looking bird with a nice yellowy green color and red in the usual place around eyes and beak, I have spotted under the flight wings red blotches and I beleive This usually indicates female though I again have read this and may be mistaken. I would be grateful of any help that can be offered, I live in the UK, I have never before heard of Kakariki's but they are beautiful and I am glad I found one, I went out with the intention of a cockatiel, but me and the wife saw this and fell in love so we got this instead. Please help if anyone can.

Thanks again,
