New Kakariki not active
I bought a new Kakariki a week ago. We already have 2 of them, super fun and active from day1, and 2 cockatiels. The new Kakariki is completely inactive. He sleeps all day, or eats, doesn t explore anything. His behaviour is more cockatiel like!
He is 8 weeks old. I took it back to the pet shop, who said that he was absolutely fine, and might just be intimidated by the other birds. To be fair, when we arrived in the pet shop, he suddenly got lively and walked around the cage like a Kakariki would do. Did he hear his mates there?
I don't buy the timid argument. As I write this, he is alone in our very big cage, wide open as the other birds are free in the house, and stays there like a lemon. Do you think that buying another bird from the pet shop might make him change? It is a bit of a risk to take as I don't want to have two lemons...
