    Why is my Caique randomly attacking my boyfriend

    My 5 year old female White Bellied Caique is bonded to me, and most of the time she is fine with everyone else, including my boyfriend. However, randomly she gets very aggressive towards him.

    Screaming while biting his leg

    I have a 6 month old Caique. Ever since I got him he would suddenly start screaming and bite one of his legs (like thigh part) for a while before going back to being ok. He does it at least once a day and its on the same leg every time. Up until now I thought maybe it was normal behavior since...

    Caiques fighting?

    Hey all! I am not sure if I am just inexperienced or what is up... all day today these little buggers have been fighting. At least to me it looks like fighting seeing as one always falls down from the top of the cage and then clambers right back up after 30 seconds of break. I am not sure if it...
