Reasonable price for Kakariki in Aus? And more questions...
Posted 31 March 2010 - 01:20 PM
Also, does $130 sound like a reasonable price (each) for a Kakariki in Perth. I have found one breeder, though I am still looking around. $130 sounds fine to me, but I don't want to be taken for a ride, either.
Thanks again! I'm finding this forum very helpful!

There's no reason 2 boys wouldn't get along, particularly if you purchase them at the same time or within a reasonable period. They will grow up together and be buddies. You would only run in to potential problems if you have one for a lot longer then you have the other, the first one may be resentful of an intruder. It's hard to see the size of that cage but it looks acceptable. I personally find the squarer cages a bit more practical, just because you tend to get more space up top, which is where the birds will be 90% of the time!

I have since purchased this cage for $400 and am VERY happy with it It's 2m long, and as mentioned it is a lot more practical than the other. I can't wait to start adding a few toys, etc!!

I should also mention that they are pretty messy due to kicking the food out technique. I changed the normal bowl in the cage to a small size plastic dog bowl. That way he can stand in the food and eat how he would in the wild on the ground. I also have another smaller bowl on the bottom of the cage which I put chopped up orange/apple and grapes.
Toys: They like foot toys and don't over do the hanging toys as they will climb around the outside of the cage alot and they may get tangled up.
All the best with your new Kaks.
Any questions just let me know

And by the way, we paid $500 for him and his cage, so I guess it's a relative thing. He's about as far away from New Zealand as he can get.
