Hi Sammy,

w3c to the community of kakariki fans.

I don't mean to be rude, but I can't really understand what you say or what you need help for.
And please try to use punctuation and shorter sentences, it's kind of difficult to understand your post.

In any case I hope you are lucky with your eggs and get a nice clutch.
Please, make sure you are not breeding with hybrids.

Cheers/ Pablo

If the yellow one is sitting on the eggs then she will be female. The male will feed your female. I had the same problem some years ago when i bought my 3rd Kaki and i was told she's female, we called her Sarah. Well Sarah is a male and the proud dad of 4 baby Kaks just under 1 week old. Have you got any loose feathers in the bottom of the cage if so what colour?. My female has pulled her chest feathers out when she started sitting on the eggs.

I'm not sure if it's the female who pulls the chest feathers or it's just due to the friction with the eggs, or a bit of both.

Would like to know what Steps or the other guys think about this.

Cheers / Pablo

Some of our hens have 'bare spots others dont...
As to if they pluck , or get worn or just end up being folded that way, never taken much notice
Its common with all our parrots species so never worried about it.

hi sammy

just read your pm, thx for taking the effort to explain the situation.

As 456 says definitely whoever is brooding is the female.
But also take into account occasionaly 2 birds of the same sex may pair up and breed, be it 2 males or 2 females. I have housed recently a few males together and 2 of them indeed paired up. In hens didn't see it so far but didn't give them a nest neither. Maybe in the future I make an experiment.

In agapornis for instance is really common that 2 hens get together and attempt to breed.

But let's wait and see what you got, maybe you have a proper pair.

Cheers / Pablo

Regaurding the chest feathers, On AJ when shes out of the nest all looks ok, not a feather missing. It seems to be just up from her legs. When she's had a bath and she's preening you can see a bare patch of skin, i think she has done this to keep her chicks warm, ( all 5 of her eggs have hatched chicks age range from 8 days to 2 days old). The feathers in the nest are the small downey feathers.
