My name is Malin, I'm from Sweden and I live with my fiance. We have both grown up with birds and are longing for someone to take care of.
I've been planning for getting a bird for almost a month now. A drawing for the new cage is under production. We have cage requirements here in Sweden and a Kakariki cage must be 120 cm's long, 70 width and 80 high and there is not many huge cages on the market here in Sweden so I'm building it myself.
My question is:
I would really want my Kakariki to be tame. Should I get one Kakariki first, get him tame and then get a second one? Or could I get two Kakarikis and manage to get them both tame? I've had Budgies and it is really difficult to get two tame Budgies if you haven't had one Budgie first... They learn from each other...
I really have to get two Kakarikis since both me and my fiance work full time jobs. Couldn't bare to leave one bird alone a whole day.
And your reply made me think of another question... How can I tell what sex the kakarikis have? I know budgies show by the colour above their beak and a cockatiel by the colours of their feathers - after they have gone through their first moult period...
Are there any other clever ways of telling the sex if I don't have the possibility to compare a female and male? (The male is bigger, right?)
Male bigger slightly diff shaped head, bigger beak, the strip under the wing
Females is generally more difined
Combine all these together. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
