Last year we had a kak called keeka sadly she died learllier this year our male one tovi started to attack her and chase her and so we put a nest box in the cage and they both calmed down and were happy again. Now we have a new kak called mia we were told when we got her she was only 2 months old which would make her about 4 months now how true this is we dont know. Tovi and Mia have settled down well with each other but recently he started to go for her like he did keeka. For her safety weput the box back in so she can escape him when she needs to they have both settled down and are happy feeding each other again she spends a lot of time in the box and we have noticed she has layed 5 eggs and is sitting on them. We dont know whether to leave them in or take them out, we dont know if they are fertile and if she is obviously old enough. Would she lay eggs at this age or will she be older than we think? We havent actually seen them mating but that doesnt mean they havent been any advice would be appreciated.
We used to breed Kaks and I reckon your bird is older than 4 months! We have had hens lay eggs at 1yr old but the youngest I have ever heard of is 10 months. If she is older then there is a good chance the eggs are fertile. Mating occurs when you aren't looking
I have known kaks to lay at 6 months old, so she may well be older than you were told to start with. Some shops give an age guide from fledgling age and not from hatching so thats a month out already.
In my experience, kaks are exhibitionists when it comes to mating, they're not very quiet with it either lol so im sure that if they had been "at it" then they would have given you some kind of show, even if it was just the noise lol. As you havent seen them active, i would guess that she is just playing mummy at the moment and the eggs are not fertile, but you never know
If she will let you, try holding a candle to one and take a look If they are fertile and she does manage to hatch them successfully, she might need keeping a close eye on that she takes motherhood seriously. i have known young birds to go in one of two directions - either be fantastic and breed the most gorgeous babies, or, to start off great then lose interest quickly and stop feeding and start kicking the little'uns around the box.
