Congratulations Mum Applause Applause Applause Applause

As the chick gets older mum will spend more time out of the box so you will get plenty of chances for longer peeks as the chick grows. Make sure you feed plenty of greens and fresh fruit.

When the chick starts to pin feather keep an eye on it to make sure mum or dad doesn't pluck the feathers. If you check Karens birds (in her thread) you will see how quickly the birds can become plucked.

GOOD LUCK and keep us updated.

If u have a Kakariki that has been badly inbred..and infertile and prone to throwing deformed chicks...mating to a good partner will not change this.

Either 1 or both maybe at fault.

Females a slightly smaller than the male...clearly noticable, but only just clearly noticable on ave sized pairs.

I would be getting hold of Kaka.riki or Cattscapes to source a good female...Both are reputanle breeders.

She did not come from a good place so it is possible she is inbred.....she also had a very poor diet bfore i got her (not sure if that makes a diff) but you are right if i am serious about breeding i will get a high quality hen and leave this girl to just live a relaxed life.......In saying that i know nothing about tobys background at all... i just got him from a pet store....he is a big healthy looking boy but who knows the truth????

You probably shoundn't give up on her just yet. Sometimes first time mums dont know what to do. Quite a few of mine have had dramas in the first nest and gone on to breed large clutches. My mottled hen for example i have had for 2.5 years and in that time she has laid 20 odd infertile eggs. Now just when i had decided to give up she has a new mate and 3 chicks with 2 eggs to hatch. Patience is the key. Cheers Kev
