I have succesfully bred kakariki and cockatiels in the same aviary. How big is your avairy? My mixed avairies have been at least 3m by 2m by 2m.

I kept five young kakariki (four months old) together with a Sun Conure, Jenday and two Gold Caps for a couple of weeks. The aviary was 5m by 2m by 2m. The kakarik were strong fliers whilst the Conures had all been hand reared pets (confined to small cage indoors with clipped wings) and were not great fliers. The Conures manged to bite one of the kakariki's legs and the bird has never fully recovered and now perches on one leg.

Do not mix any birds with conures as conures like to play rough and will injure other birds badly.

Thanx for the replies, I wasn't sure about the conure but I new the kak's and tiels would be ok. I'll keep the conure indoors as another house pet.

How long have they been together?

is it an 'open' avairy?

Im asking, beacuse we are building another house and machine workshop, ther is a large 'space' between them I have my eye on, and have been thinking along these lines

MY back yard door opens and I am in the avairy I put a roof on my yard. The flight is about 11 ft long 10 ft wide and 12 to 13 ft high In the flight .I also have a small wall about 2 foot high and 11 ft long in a b shape filled with soil, so they can forage ,with the other part floor tiles . The canaries have been living with us for about 3 months now .
I was worried about introducing them in the same flight at first ,so i put them in a cage for a while, till the other birds had a good look at them and got used to seeing them around .Then I let them out .I was a little worred that they might not take to them so I was not leaving them out when I was not around.

But after I went to the parrot club and seen most of the avaries with a mixture of bird types, I stopped worrying . I leave my back yard door open at all times when the canaries are out they tend to always fly back to their cage every few mins, I found the rosellas love birds and red rumps to be territorial they all have a bit of territory near the nest they are nesting in.other than that they are fine

I have a few nest boxes for love birds in one corner. the red rumps and love birds share that corner , they protect the nest box they only get protective if another bird goes on that box. the distance for that clutch of boxes is about 6 inches from box to box some higher some lower most boxes are used ,they like to occupy a couple of boxes till they find the box they really like then abandon the alternative box , the cockatiels are on the other corner where i have 3 boxes at different levels a pair of cockatiels have the highest box, other boxes are not used but cockatiels go in and out of them the rosellas have a box on the other corner I am putting up more boxes as i go along ,the kakarikis have boxes on another corner where i have the soil patch , i put the boxes up a bit lower ,cause i was reading that kakarikis tend to push out the chicks and sometimes they fall and can get injured ,so I thought lower and softer ground ,as I said earlier Steptoe I am a beginner, Im learning so I am still finding every day a new adventure studying thier behaviour Its fasinating

Today Smartie our male kak wanted to have a bath while he was washing himself two rosellas came down to join in ,He didnt like that much and went to another bath the female rosella was curious and went to the other bath , smartie washed himself got out started walking got behind her (She is at this time dipping her face in the water) kicked her and flew off signlol that was funny . Laughing I was quite stunned

These posts made for a real interesting read..Firstly \i was thinking to not breeding but considering another mix with my well acquainted Kakariki..but as my flight seems fairly big It would NOT seem so impossible then from these posts to breed in a community aviary instead...(Pabloc would be plsd :D)
P.S anyone got a beautiful Male in uk???? could swap for female if wish...
