Hello ^_^

I was just wondering what the tell tale signs of a healthy Kakariki are? (she's a lutino kakariki) Such as what their feathers, beak and claws should look like, what their behaviour should generally be like to show that they are happy, what they should be eating (my dear is a bit of a seed junkie at the moment and i'm not sure how to get her out of it signlol), she loves apples but how much apple can she eat before it becomes unhealthy? Also, how often should they bathe?

Thank you :) :) :)

bath everyday, as far as they have a water bowl available they will bath, they love it

apple and other veggies, no problem
if he's a seed junkie remove the seed during the day and only make it available at night, eventually they get hungry and eat veggies

healthy kakariki... bright eyes, no messy feathers, bright color, etc... and of course very active and lively (unless when they take the occasional nap)
