From personal experience if I had a hand raised Kakariki and wanted to be able to interact with it etc I would just keep her/him alone. Only two weeks ago I introduced my male HR to a female HR and now all he does is attack and bit me if I go near. He follows her around all day and wants nothing to do with me at all any longer. He still speaks and whistles but will only get on my hand or shoulder if he has to and often after sitting fine for a few minutes will bit my hand, ear, lip or whatever he can.

Here is my post about it and the assistance I go with my situation.

Sorry if this turns you off getting him/her and friend but I miss having my companion. He and his girl are aviary housed and still he attacks me if I enter as its HIS aviary. Just ask him. wall I am hoping once a little time passes he will calm down and go back to something like the bird he was.

Good luck.
Ben
