Help l was giving a Kakariki for christmas and finding it hard to get any info on them.
Things l would like to know.
1 How long do they live for.
2 What do they like to eat as l was told sunflower & parrot mix only.
3 My boy has pulled out all of his tail feathers got no tail now.
4 What toys if any do they like he has a mirror with bells on it.
5 Are they happy living alone by themself or should l get a mate for him.
6 He is not tame in a small budgie cage for 18 months or so until we got him now in a large cage inside took awhile for him to get use to a bigger cage but loves to roof walk every day.
They a funny little birds.
l would like to get as much info as possible on Kakariki so my boy can live a happy life.
So if any one can help l would be very greatful.

To the left is a "quick Search" box put a word(s) to do a forum search on subjects....also a seach button above

That is not good...quite tramatic for the bird...and they have long memories
They will grow back.

I think what he means is the bird has pulled out his OWN tailfeathers. I hope he doesn't mean his son has pulled out the bird's tailfeathers.

The bird should be given fresh vegetables. The search option will help you find a good list of vegetables that are good and bad for birds. They love sunflower seeds but this is like a person eating nothing but chocolate...

l have been giving him fresh fruit & vegies plus sunflower seed and small parrot mix.
Y can't there be a simple fact sheet on kakarikis instead of wasting time going though all the old stuff l got sick of it after a while.

There is no such thing as a simple fact sheet...animals are all different as individuals....it like saying why isnt there a simple fact sheet on human beings..

Until this site came up, and a couple of other experienced members, damn near everything in books, etc was wrong or way off...
Hence why this site was created, and experience members created a data base of information...
If people get "sick of it (going thru) " then maybe they should take up needle point.

It took me 2 yrs to code this site up, I provide custom search block s to left on every page, there is also a search button above...
Experienced members from all over the world have spent hrs every day for many yrs
I do not know how to code it so it picks up what a visitor is thinking then automatically finds the info they want....mainly because esp between users and web site has yet to be developed.

Experienced members from all over the world have spent hrs every day for many yrs , providing information and support and someone is to damn lazy to use a search button...

You already refered to that:

And the server logs show you have made very little attempt at all.

You are the only person in 5 yrs who has not appreciated the information on the web site.
