    Caique screech worrying me

    Hello everyone! My black-headed caique is female and around 5 months old, and one month ago he started doing a different sounding screech which has me worried that she's unhappy or she's some kind of sick. Basically, she acts normal and has been playful and energetic as usual, doing it's...

    Pictures Caique back feathers yellowing

    Hello, everyone! I'm new to this forum and wanted to inquire about some change in back color feathers on my 5-year old female caique that I'm concerned about. I have only recently noticed this in the past 2-3 weeks where her usual all emerald green back feathers have been turning yellow. Not...

    Baby Caique not too playful?

    Hello everyone! 6 Days ago I got myself a female baby black-headed Caique (3 months old) from a reputable breeder in my country, along with a huge cage with many toys and perches. I was able to choose which baby to take home and this one was just so curious about me so I ended up bringing her...

    Newcomer!

    Hello everyone! I'm from Portugal and my first feathery-adventure occured in 2020, when I tamed a Agapornis roseicollis during the pandemic. Most recently, I have acquired a Caique parrot! Since the beggining I used to come into these forums a lot in order to learn more and have some doubts...

    Should i get a quaker for 6 month old BHC?

    Hi, I have a male 6 month old BHC (hand reared) and want to get a quaker. i have two large cages but he's only fond of one. I know you can't exactly trust your birds, even though he doesn't display any agressive behaviour towards strangers or other animals. even if they don't get along, they can...

    Is 7/8” Bar Spacing too Big for a Caique?

    I’m thinking about getting this cage for my caique. Only concern is that the bar spacing might be too wide for his toys, perches and stuff like that. Thoughts?

    Mirror-Crazed Caique

    Hello! About 6 weeks ago I adopted a caique, Loki, who I was told is around 3 years old. I didn’t get into parrots until a little over a year ago and am learning as much as I can when I have time. He has bit me twice and both times, looking back, were avoidable (if I had researched more I...

    Regression at 2years old?

    Sulley, my caique, has just turned two years old and has regressed back into eating only food that has been pureed much like the baby bird food and being hand fed with a spoon. He's been to the vet and is healthy and they believe it's just behavioural. Has anyone dealt with something like this?

    Hi, everyone! I’m new here and I think I’m posting in the right place but please be sure to let me know if not. I’m a long-time exotic parrot owner and handler. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good avian behavioral specialist, particularly with caique experience as I’m in need of some...

    My Caiques

    Hi Guys, I am new to this and thought I would join to say hi and share stories and hopefully get some advice. I have two Caiques; 1 WBC (male) & 1 BHC (female). I have a certificate for both to confirm the gender but, I think it maybe the other way around... My Black-Headed Caique (BHC) is 2 and...

    Caique with separation anxiety??

    So i've had Marvel for 4 days at this point and she's been wonderful except for one MAJOR issue. If she can't see anyone, she immediately starts doing a flock call (the best I can describe it is a very loud door creak. it's longer than the "smoke alarm" vocalization) every 8-10 seconds and does...

    Where the babies should live

    My caiques recently had three babies. They're doing well, and they all live in a pretty large cage for the moment. The babies are about two months old now, so they're fledging and starting to eat food. They're also getting bigger, and though the cage is large, I'm thinking it probably is going...

    Coping with my caiques death

    WARNING SAD STORY My caique passed away last night at ~7 years old. My little sister decided to adopt a stray cat and the cat decided it wanted my bird. I am beyond devastated and it was an incident that could have been avoided if we just told her to give up the cat (but how could we do tell...

    Odd feather color

    Hi everyone, I got offered a black cap caique and am 100% planning to get him, but his feather color is very odd. The owner said he’s pied, but could this be indicative of health issues? I don’t want to bring in a bird that’s sick that could cause issues for my other fids. I’d love some...

    First bird Lovebird, second bird?

    Hello! I currently have a very social and clingy fisher loverbird. She is a hen, about 2yrs now. Only had lovebirds before. Would really like to get another bird at some point, maybe a bigger one. My question here is there a species that goes along better than another with lovebirds? Ive always...
