Hiya all, allow me to Introduce myself real quick - Im Chris living in Malta and has ever owned Cockatiels and Budgies.

Recently a neighbor of mine came round and asked me if I would adopt 2 Kakarikis. According to him they are brother and sister, and basically the father died while they were still in the nest and the hen started killing the chicks.

I have managed to hand raise them so far, and been keeping them as pets for almost 9 months. So their age is round about 10 to 11 months.

First and fore most I have no idea how to identify a male from a female, and secondly I was just wondering what is the basic required to attempt breeding kakarikis.

I am well aware having a brother and a sister (if they even are so) is not the ideal of course, but I'm just wondering to see if it's worth taking a stab at breeding these pretty interesting little fellas.

This is Pippa what I believe is the female

On the left is a "Quick search" block
everything u need to know is in these forums...
From diet , any why thru to how to breed by inbreeding successfully, hybrids mutations compatibility with other species
looks like a male and female.....
look/ find a thread "what do u feed...." for diet....

I think u will find, like many other members here , after cocktails and budgies u will be sold in the nature and unique character of kakariki
