Hello everyone! I was previously on a Kakariki forum site based in New Zealand, but it seems to have been deactivated. I have 2 parrots. 1 beautiful green kakariki and 1 lovely pied cockatiel. They are both wonderful companions. I have had them both for 2 years. The kakariki, I bought at a pet store and the cockatiel I rescued from the humane society. They are both unique characters with such different personalities. The kakariki is the usual aloof clown that hops around and flies like a fighter pilot. My cockatiel is so bonded with me that I can't walk 2 feet away from him without him flying to perch on my shoulder. I walk around all day with him sitting on me, even while I vacuum and do all my housework! They are both caged at night, and I let them out in the morning to play and spend the whole day out with me. They have a seed and pellet mixture in their cages, which I leave open for them to return to at their will. They also get all their fresh veggies at a feeding & play station each day. My kakariki's favorite is the fresh sprigs of rosemary that he eats and does his "anting" activities with. They both enjoy coming in the shower with me and I have a shower perch for them.
I am thoroughly enjoying my 2 companions and could not imagine my days without them. They are my first parrots and I can't believe you can fall in love so much with these wonderful feathered creatures.
Hello to all and I look forward to being part of your forum!
