HI Everyone,
I'm new to kakarikis, but I love their personalities. I had a pair and I lost the male. (heat). She was on a clutch of 5, and 4 hatched yesterday. How many do you think she can raise on her own? I have a friend who is an experienced handraiser, so I am consider giving two to him and letting her raise two on her own.

What do you all think?

Thanks!

Angela

She will raise upto around 12 plus nps on her own
essential she is left alone thu.. without the male helping she needs all her time to feed attend and nil time being distracted or upset.

If was me I would split the numbers hedge bets both ways with your friend.. 1/2 there keep 1/2.
