kakariki chick

By patman
here is a picture of our 18 day old kakariki chick, my wife has had to hand rear it because the other chick is bulling it and it is not being able to stand up because the mother and chick are standing on it, my wife has been feeding it now for about three days and it is putting on weight now,it only weights 28 grams and is taking food of my wife with a spoon which i have modified, thanks for looking...patman

Fabulous image, and congratulations on your wife's perseverance with the baby. Not many people know that kakarikis are the only species of parrot that can climb up the rungs of its cage without using its beak! (another bit of useless information!) Carol
