Kakariki parrot

Sponsored Links
Can anyone tell if our green Kakariki is a female? We’ve bred from the yellow male previously with a different female but these two aren’t mating yet despite being together now for about three months.

Re: Kakariki parrot

It's from my understanding that you sex Kakariki's based on size... males are bigger and broader where-as females are smaller and tinier.

If your two kaks are the same size, then I would guess that they are both males. If the green one is smaller than the yellow, then she's a female.

Re: Kakariki parrot

Send in a few feathers for DNA-testing, then you will be sure.

Re: Kakariki parrot

The Green one is a male also. You tell that mainly by the size and shape of the beak. Males bodies are bigger as MonicaMC points out, however that is not always the case, as some males can be unusually slim.
