We went to get a new canary yesterday and against my wishes, hubby also got a new kakariki. He has a new large cage and will not be coming out anytime soon if ever.
I can't believe the difference between him and Peppy. He likes fruit,eats with his feet and climbs everywhere. We are training him to talk like our previous one.
I remember how messy they are and have insisted that hubby is responsible for this bird including hoovering and washing the walls. I am too busy having Peppy cuddles.

I agree it helps with socialization too. Would love to see pictures of both the new birds!!

Trust me, my hubby brought home birds I didn't want all the time. The man couldn't walk into a bird store without walking out without a new bird. It was always worth it though.

It was one of the conditions I made before we got him.He is aviary bred and the cage is huge. Kakariki are a lot more active inside the cage anyway. I will probably relent eventually but we lost our last one through mis-adventure with a door and I would hate that to happen again. Peppy is hand reared therefore much easier to put to bed. Will keep you posted.(photo is my previous bird but they are identical)

Update: Kiki and Peppy are now best friends and love socialising together. He is a great flyer and goes back in his cage on his own. Not the best photo but you get the idea.
