Welcome to the site.

When you say brood cupboard, I think you mean nest box - where the birds lay eggs and raise their babies. There are also brooders, heated cupboards / boxes where baby birds are kept to be hand raised.

I use a little bit of sand at the bottom of my nest boxes (cat litter) to absorb moisture. The stuff little cats (kittens) use for their toilet boxes. On top of that I use a layer of Pine wood shavings that is nice and soft for the eggs and babies to go on.

Hope this helps.

Ek verstaan Afrikaans, dalk is jou taal amper dieselfde? Ons kan probeer om so te kommunikeer.

1/Guys,Truudeke PMed me his language problem, he is able to read english, but has difficulty writing. Truudeke is from Belgium...is that french or Dutch based? Anyway, Truudeke, your translation above may not be correct, but even I who only understands English , certainly grasp what u want to say.
Its also nice to see members helping out to.

2/We use about 30mm of loosely packed forrest floor leaf debris (semi composted) in the nesting boxes, the cracks in the base allow access moisture to run out if they ever get flooded.
It contains little twiggs (30 to 40 mm) old leaves, little soil, etc..The parents then break this down, and form into a hollow. The Chicks also spend time chewing on this 'natural' base...We did notice using other nesting material that the inside of the boxes had considerable chewing marks, and thought it would be better if they chewed something more natural than the untreated pine walls.
The debris is sprayed with 50/50 Sol'n vinegar/water till just damp.
(See other posts re vinegar and worms etc.)
The theory being, in the wild, the nest in hollow trees that contain such debris, and is usually a little damp. And to that a little bird poo, and it heats up from the phosphates in the poo...natural incubator?

3/Pairing is when they start to make friends, mating is when they get into bird porn Shocked
Pairing can be days to couple weeks, Identifed with both sleeping in the nesting box ans male feeding the female.
Mating can be over about a week , and many breeders rarely see this happen. egg laying takes place about 1 to 2 weeks after mating (I think) I suppose it depends on which mating results in fertilisation.

I think she is asking "will i be able to make them tame".
The dutch equivalent for tame means "tam".

Kakariki's are the most easy birds to make tame. Its in them genes. With a little patience they come eat out of your hands no matter what age they are.
But Steptoe can explain it better.

Truudeke

Als je bijvoorbeeld een zonnepit, rozijn of stukje fruit tegen de tralies houd en een beetje geduld uitoefent komen ze het wel halen. Geen bruuske bewegingen maken in het begin.
Zo kan je stap voor stap verder gaan bv met een potje zaad in je hand in de kooi gaan zodat ze eruit komen eten.

Succes

PostPosted: Tue Feb 01, 2005 4:47 am    Post subject: kaks brooding and making nests

Well a very familiar name to me, w3c here as well Trudy.
( so Steptoe you have one begium, two dutch and one sout african member speaking dutch!)

I will try to translate what she was asking for :

how to get her kaks tame ?

The answer of Peter was by giving them somthing they like very, very much, like a peace of an applle, or sunseed and they are so willing to have it that , if you are very patient , after several attempts they will take it from your hand, and so continue by going in the cage with your hands etc etc.
In my aviary there is no need for the kaks to be tame, the only tame one I have is always coming to me , sitting on my shoulders and making it very difficult to make pics of other birds.....,my dear naughty Yellow !

many greetings,
MARIANNE
