Posted: Mon Jul 11, 2016 7:12 am Post subject: compatibility with Australian King Parrots
I have a female cinnamon kakariki and was interesting in getting an Australian King Parrot (possibly male).
Does anyone know how well these two species tend to get along? Also, my female kakariki is very hormonal and I'm worried she might try to copulate with a new bird, does anyone know if king parrots can mate with kakarikis? would prefer to have them be able to play together but can keep them separate if need be.
Yep a nice combo .. we have done so .. also the Crimson wing/ and king/ crimson wing/ kakariki.
Issues arise if the kakariki go to nest... intimidate the kings/ crimsons... well anything in the same flight.
If kings or crimsons go to nest not an issue... but not if kings and crimsons are in the same flight.
Throw in a couple turqs and or burkes and you have a very interesting display flight. Espec if the flight is built to be viewed from the side rather than an end. One doesnt 'loose' them way in the distance and they become very interactive thru the mesh.
1.2 m deep, 4 or 5m long 1.8m heigh.
OH and framing can be made of 50mm x 50mm timber, ply walls rather than steel.. all these species are not destructive chewers like cockatoos. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
It has been rumoured, even pics of some question , in the UK to have crossed a kakariki8 with a Rosella...very distant cousins
Yet Rosella are very common thru out the Island of NZ, even in urban areas, in large flocks for around 100yrs. Basically in pest proportions, yet as far as I know there has never been a recorded cross between the 2 species , wild or captivity.
No such thing as a stupid question, just stupid ppl.
There where those who asked so called 'stupid' questions at school etc and those jocks who made fun of them...and usually didnt even understand the question let alone the answer
Those who asked the question went on to become the bosses, those who made fun cleaned their cars. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
I think your little girl is a little boy
large beak size.
Check under the wing, a yellow stripe.. if 'faded' female if more solid male.
In young birds not so defined.. better indication when get around 12 months.
Personally I think male birds tend to make the better pets and mix better in mixed avairies _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
We have had a couple very large females which we had mistaken for males...but could not breed off them...they would go to nest but not lay.
Could you check the yellow stripe under the wing? _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
