Can my kak go in an aviary outside?

Hi all I have a kak and he is 3 months old I am concerned that his cage is way to small it is 41cm x 80cm I am thinking as he loves to fly he would be more suited to an aviary but am a complete beginner and do not have a clue where to start...he is allowed out to fly around twice a day or so but I feel that it is mean to keep him in such a small space and I feel an aviary would be kinder and possibly then he could have a friend or two for company? What do you all think? TIA x

I recommend keeping kakarikis outdoors over keeping them indoors. Mine are in a 6 x 6 x 6 aviary (I have 2). The bigger the aviary the better too

Ahh as I thought from doing my research will he become less tame? Can he go out there alone to start off with of does he need a Friend straight away? I just feel he would be happier in a bigger enclosure x

If you give him plenty to do and provide him with lots of enrichment he will be fine on his own for a little while. If you get a second bird make sure you quarantine them. Keep them inside for 4 weeks (and if you can, test them) to see if any signs of illness crop up. When the 4 weeks is over and/or you've got the results back you can introduce them outside

Very good idea!
In a German forum I saw a kakriki bathing in the snow. They have no problems with low temperature.
