new here.and i have just had the pleasure to obtain 4 lovely,kakariki's.. one male and female,,and their offspring who were more than well looked after beyond spoilt,now,my question how well do these birds adapt to change and their surroundings,about the only thing different in their aviary is the height,but they seemed to have figured that one out,thimhi ey had a higher roof,i only have had a gang gang to look after who sleeps in the same place every nite..do these birds need a special place to sleep.like boxes,i went out therr tonite and the female was sleeping in the long shaped food container,befre they came to me they had at least 2large bowls of seed and 2 of water,2 of shell grit and all the fruit and veges hanging up...do i need to do all of this for them because i normally do things a little different,but thats what they are used to i will..any help is appreciated thanks

Kak's seem to adapt quickly to a new envirement. Once I see them eating I feel they are reasonably settled. Keep an eye on their water as they love to bath and will certainly get through the water.
