Diet & Nutrition

Kararikis love to eat, they eat both seed and vegetable food. They are very easy to feed as in they eat just about anything. A varied diet should be offered though we suggest Lovebird mix, Cockatiel or Small Parrot seed mixes, fruit and vegetables.

You can feed them is wet food like vegetables, sprouted seeds, beans, fruits, cooked beans and grains. They drag them onto higher perches to eat, but they can drop lots of food outside the cage on the way. It is necessary to clean around the cage frequently, otherwise old food might cause infection to inquisitive Kararikis.

Kararikis pose no problem when feeding as long as there is plenty of it and a good variety. A cuttlebone or a mineral block should be used to help maintain the Kakariki beak as this is a source of calcium along with a millet spray when you want to treat your Karariki. Fresh food and water must be made available a daily basis.
