Kagu pairs occupy territories that are 10 to 28 hectares in size (2). They are active during the day, sleeping on nests at night (4). A single chick is raised each year, although in particularly dry years even this may not be possible (4). Kagus feed on a variety of invertebrates such as worms and snails and even some small vertebrates such as lizards (2).
