I'm shattered, come home from work and find all 4 of my 3 week old babies dead! 3 have clear signs of violence on them (beak marks and blood). The 4th has no mark and also dead.


The aviary is a communal aviary with a few other Kakarikis and 4 budgies.

Who on earth could have killed the babies? The mum was in a different box tonight (there are many boxes in the aviary).

I'm so sad and don't know what to do now (if there is anything to prevent such a thing ever happening again).

We have said many times before , breeding in community avairies usually leads to heart break
Doubt if other kakariki, those issues are outside the nesting box.. a territorial thing .... budgies and for some reason blue budgies, if get into nesting boxes just love to play will new toys, yes will kill anything in there... and they dont muck around doing so.

If u put the surviving chick under the hen in the new box, very good chance she will carry on ok....but definitely remove the budgies.. note the comment on blue budgies.
