I have a Kakariki couple that both mates and feed eachothers, and the hen has been using 90% of her time in the nestingbox now for the last couple of weeks or so. I caugth them in the act a couple of times, and since it's a aviary and im only there to replace food and suchs things, im sure there has been more than a couple of mating sesions going on.

I was expecting an egg soon, but so fare not a single egg. Im wondering if theres anything missing, or if it can be normal to take weeks before she lays her eggs? Both look healthy, are eathing good and go look quit contendt.

Hi,
I was wondering if your kaks had babies yet? Mine are doing the same thing...female is in nest box most of the time and is making a sqealing noise. My male has turned really aggressive and is protect the cage and the nesting box. They've been mating for a few weeks....how long does it take to lay the eggs? xx

im no expert but how old are your kakarikis? i had a pair of budgies that i was trying to breed but no success the hen always went in the nest box and i saw them mating quite afew times but it turned out she was just to young so i took the nest boxes out.

as i said earlier im NO expert so you are probably best not to do anything until a more experienced member replys.

Sometimes, no matter what bird species, even ppl, nothing happens but often pair them up with another bird and its all on with one and often both.
