Does anyone here own a red-crowned parakeet(kakariki)? My local bird hang out just sold one but the owner had coughing issues since getting the bird so they are returning it tomorrow. With my limited interaction with this baby, it was super sweet and pretty hyper. The store's manager and employees think it may be a good bird for me. If you have been on the lovebird section you will not that I have had horrible luck trying to find a clean lovebird. Anyways if anyone has any experience with these bird when they mature, I would love to hear about it. Are they cuddly birds? More independant? Hyper? I haven't been able to find to much info on these guys as companion pets. I currently have sun conures and wanting to add a cuddly social bird to my bird family. Am currently waiting for disease testing on my 4th lovebird but they would hold the kakariki for me if I wanted it because they know I could give it a good home.
