From what i remember getting the permet to get my kakariki was very smoothe!
I applied and paid my $100, after a while and a few cancelations the doc officer came out to inspect my aviary, he was very pleased. but commented that i could have another perch since there were other birds in the aviary.
He then took some photoes and that was it!
Our permit several yrs ago went rather smooth also, but it did take several weeks for them to come out.
When we sent the application in we also sent the floor plans and photos
There where a couple burkes in at the flight at the time that he queried, and said that only 2 kikes /flight, althu from the pland they are not small flights.
Also he was very impressed with the avairy, and with tree shelter from summer sun, side shelter from cold southerlies.
We did have 1 small hiccup, he said that the permit would be thru in a couple weeks, so I showed him the DoC web page showing different.
He was not aware of the DoC info....filled out the form, we took a copy on our fax machine and he gave the OK to pick the birds up that evening.
Another thing that suprised us, was he was suprised that we hadnt already got the Kikes. Considering one cant supply kikes to a non permit holder and require their permit # to record the transfer. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
The same with me, they said it would take a couple of weeks to process but we were going to get the birds that weekend so he hurried it along for us, i think the main reason for the delay is because they have to get a singnature from someone up in a "high place" ?
HA i remember our dog was barking away at him while he was having a chat to me and here i was nervously nodding away and trying to slip in the evil eyes to the dog to be quiet!
We chatted about what was happening with a kakariki transfer in the wellington region at the time and then he left.
