Hi guys, from my experience I test the better form to induce the pairing on my kaka, I fallow this rules:
1.- I put the pair with out nest box for 2 weeks.
2.- every day I put meal worm tenebrios.
3.- too I put bowls with many waters. Remember our kakas joint take a bath.
4.- them after to 2 or 3 weeks the pair are ready to the nest box.
Is very important put every day a few portion of tenebrios, because the kaka on stage wild search worms on the earth, this situation stimulate the mating betwen the pairs.
Well don't worry because the kakas only suck the worm, they don't eat the body of the worm.

I have just bought my first pair of kaks. I have a worm farm that the worms only get vegie scraps. Would it work well to use these worms as their enviroment is not polluted?
Also for meal worms farms i use Oat bran and chicken starter as a base. This seems to provide meal worms with protien

Mealworms..I knew the translation box below would come in useful signlol
What is continually impressive is how well members who english is not 1st language, are so well understood.

We are similar...
Good consistant diet and an increase in protein in the autumn...chopped up cooked chopped up chicken bones, cooked chopped steak etc left overs from our table..and KFC left overs....we did orginally use meal worms and trialed washed garden worms...yep worked just as well as our left overs...but much more expensive and worst of all time consuming.

The water, our birds have water trays and automativc time replaces every morning all yr round.

we only have wilds so have in a comunity cage..watch what pair up, which is usually unrelated and the strongest naturally.
Then move to the nesting flights
OR move a choosen pair into a nesting flight with at least 1 nesting box.
Can take anything from a few days when they have never been pair before or already paired from previous season to 3 to 5 weeks, espec if they breed the previous season and are being paired with new partners.

A question on how long you can leave multible pairs in an aviary to pair up? It seems like the best way to get pairs but is fighting between males a problem?

I do not enjoy flights or bird communities that there is scabbling.
They get terroriorial when there is a nesting box, and are moved out once it is obvious ..male feeding here tc.

Steps,

for once I will disagree about mealworms being time consuming or expensive.
And in fact they are a good way of recycling leftover soft-food from the birds and certain kitchen scraps. Last winter I fouled the colony because they had too much humidity as I used leftover bread intead of dried breadcrumbs.
I will give them a try again, let's see if I don't screw up this time.

But nothing like giving the kikes a bone with a few pieces of meat, they clean it like a flock of vultures from TV documentaries.

My girlfriend's mother was a bit skeptical, so I grabbed one of the bones from the flights and gave it to her. She was astonished that "small parrots" could do that.
Also... at a Dutch website I saw a breeder take a pic of a bucket full of boiled chicken necks, for different species of large parrots. He claims it's a delicatessen for them.

Cheers / Pablo

There is only my wife and I at home now..all the chriden married left home etc...so our kitchen scraps no longer meet the volume we require for a compost bin any more....And have more than enough parrots to consume all our food scraps
Chichen bones left over meat bones from roasts, bbqs cassoroles..what we dont eat get choped with a clevier into about 1/2 to 1 pea size.
Any bigger they throw in the water..and polute it, which means more work for me....AND they can get at the rich marrow inside.
Its not just the protein, its phosphorus/calcium from the cartilage and bones, iron and other minerails from the marrow..plus lots of other vit minerals etc
There are no leftovers to clean up each week.

Note the kakariki diet we give to ALL our bird species ...king, crimson wing, burkes, turqs, cocketeils quail etc.

PostPosted: Wed Sep 15, 2010 3:08 pm    Post subject: About the kakas and the mealworm

Hi again guys,
well I read the words come from all, I need to say thanks every ones for they words. Sorry for my poor English. I promise I goin Improve.
And the other hand, let get back to speak about the kakas.

- the meal worms for me is a good feed for kaka and this is chiper than chiken. They have I very good quantity of protein for the kakas.
- I am try to get other feed with high protein like the fish but is many complicated because the kakas don't eat.
- some day I saw how my kakas eat very well the litlle worms from the fresh corn.

Well, every day my kakas joint the worms and fresh water.

Maybe I am try to put the chiken to my kakas, I going to see if my kakas eat the chiken tomorrow.

Well keep In touch.
Note: I hope some day going to Australia, I really enjoy this.

Regards friens.

We go out fishing , filet the fish, chop up the remains and feed nps...
No we dont buy or supply any meat of any type for our birds, its all leftovers from the dinner table/fast food and food prepareation .. Chicken pork, venison, lamb what ever...meat bones chopped up fine with a big very sharp clever.
It not just protein but minerials like iron calcuim...
Costs nothing and less work.
