    Hi! Im a passionate bird lover and I joined to gather information on birbs :) I want to adopt a little feathered friend and I kinda fell in love with caiques... But I've read a lot about them and I am a bit scared of their agressivity. I am wondering if behavioral issues can be avoided/alleviated with a combination of all of these:
    • A big cage with lots of destroyable toys and foraging toys to challenge their intellect
    • A toy rotation im the cage so it doesnt become boring
    • Lots of out of the cage time to play and explore
    • Training (like target training, flight excercises, tricks, drop it for if they try to play with forbiden things, fetch, recall, and the like)
    • Walks outside to socialise
    • Paying attention to their body language, understanding their boundaries and not pushing them if they dont feel comfortable
    • A good diet made of pellets, lots of fresh fruit and vegetable, and lots of variety
    Am I missing something? Would that be helpfull in dealing with their sometime devilish tendencies? If not, what more can I do?
