    Hello, I have a pet female Kakariki. She’s blue and is roughly a year old or so. I’ve been wanting to get another bird and put it in the same cage since it is big enough. Would it be possible to pair a female Kakariki with a male budgie without any babies resulting from it? Or would the budgie have to be female?

    Aren’t they happier with a buddy of the same species?

    Kakariki are much better in an aviary
    Putting them in a cage,
    unless it's the size of a room
    Is bordering on cruelty
    I certainly wouldn't put a budgie in the cage with it
    It's likely to be killed due to the Kaki's sheer frustration

    I don’t think any bird should be in a cage tbh

    some people keep a pair in a big parrot cadge and let them out to fly round the room, that is ok but every one has their own thoughts about this,
