Hi! About a week ago this green little thing came flying into our backyard. We managed to catch it (even though it was quite tame anyhow), and since no owner has called in yet I've decided to give it a home with me.

I have a few questions however... could anyone tell me how old I can estimate for him (I think it's a 'he') to be?

Thus far the birdie is doing quite well, eating, drinking, pooping and sleeping. My female budgie gets along pretty well (ie: they tolerate each other). Is there anything I should know about kakariki's that is completely different from budgie care?

Hope to get some answers here!
He's been dubbed 'Houdini', by the way, considering he's quite an escapist...

looks like a nice healthy male bird....
kakariki have quite a different character to other parrots.. on the go all the time and very independent... ie they will become quite attached.. but will only interact when it is in there interest to do so

Feeding, diet, taming, toys, why they have evolved, unique in intelligence and independence (more mammal like) is all covered in old posts
make use of the "Quick Search" block on the left of the page

My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
