Hi everyone, I have just joined, first i thought i would introduce myself, my screen name is silverlady I am 52 nearly 53 and registered disabled, being past the point of return with lung disease plus a few others things, but thats not very important.
I have in my care 2 kakarikis that i rescued, in fact i almost kidnapped them, giving the previous owner a choice of handing them over to me or my reporting them for cruelty, the birds were being kept in a small cage and were almost bald, they are now in an Aviary, which is 10ft long and they look like completely different birds, I had never heard of this breed before and found it hard to find anything on the net apart from this site. my main concern is that one bird has started to feed the other, one is redheaded with dark green and the other red-headed and pale green, are they mating they have 2 nesting boxes in the aviary and the darker one spends time in 1 box, are they free breeders are seasonal breeders. I just love these birds, they even feed from my hand and always come up to say good morning to me, any info on this breed would be very helpful to me.
many thanks

silverlady

can i have any replies sent to my inbox, do i need to adjust the settings

Welcome to our community
Yep everything sounds normal....
It is important espec during recovery and breeding, to give a good diet and calcium.
I would also suggest to treat for worms and mites.
kakariki are very hardy and given good food care they recover very quickly

are they free breeders are seasonal breeders.

Depends very much on the pair and how sever your seasons are

This is why we created this site a few yrs back...
Above (and to the left "quickseach" block you can search for information
eg enter a word " diet " or a couple words

If you cant find the info ask.
