    I have a pair of 5 year old caiques on eggs. In my front room...

    And it's a dream. Apart from night time bickering after the first egg, they've turned into a dream bird.

    They pop out of the breeding cage and eat on the playstand, then quietly go back to their nest.

    They've stopped chasing me round the house.

    They're almost silent.
    They're running at about 20% normal speed
    They don't bite or lunge.
    They don't eat the furniture.
    They have no interest in who is outside.
    They don't knock things on the floor to hear them crash and break
    They could care less about my cellphone.

    Apart from the round the clock birdie sex in my front room, I'm living the dream.

    If you had sex on demand every 15 minutes, you'd be subdued too lol.

    Caique hormones are not the issue we so often hear about.

    It's caique sexual frustration!

    I'm gonna make a vid tomorrow. Actually lift two highly hormonal breeding caiques out of their cage, away from their nest and then Into another cage.

    While I examine the nest, unsupervised by beady eyes.

    Without a net, safety harness, or first aid on standby. Lol

    My hormonal breeding pair. Third egg due tomorrow. See how many bloodthirsty attacks you can count after I removed the pair away from their nest

    And two hormonal caiques being lifted away from their nest?

    With a 3rd egg imminent?

    And no stun gun to protect myself?

    As I like to say - paired birds are happy birds. At least if they're raised with other birds (as they really should be.) I had cockatiels who stayed very trusting while breeding too.

    I am so happy for you @Irishj9

    They are so calm and happy it is the total opposite of everything I have ever heard about Caiques.

    They are fine if you DO NOT touch the nest.

    If they see THAT, they go mental.

    Name a parent who wouldnt
