Hello everyone...

I am so angry and dissapointed and i dont know what is going on.

I have a male and a female kakarikis, they were matting last month,everything was going so well till today...

I need to mention that they seem to love eachother, they also were looking like good parents,but today the first 2 egs hatched, 2 littpe birds came up.I felt very nnice seeing the alive , hearing their sweet sound,BUT I DONT KNOW WHY,and wich of the parents is reposnsible, i found them after 1 hour both little birds DEAD, with violent bites , on their head and body...

I repeat i dont know wich male or the female did this.. but please tell me why they could kill their babies....
This is so sad i dont know what to do for the next eggs...

Maybe the pareants are to young.
At first i would say remove the male, the female can feed the young ones alone. If it happens again it the female.
If it happens by the second clutch you can better remove the male compleet.

thanks for the reply,this was my first thought , and yes i think both are too young , i tried remove the male into other cage but he could be able to still feed her if she would go outside the nest but still it seems that she needs him to feed cause she doesnt get out so often...

so i placed the male on the cage again and so far the third little bird is still alive.. lets hope !!

just a little update for ppl who readed my post !

Today i catched for first time the female feeding the baby !!!!

My lovely male is so brave and working hard for this little bird aswell!
It seems they kill the first 2 babies cause they were weak i guess?

It was a great moment , watching them working hard to feed that little cute baby!

i am happy ! woohoo!
