    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...

    Is this caique a hybrid?

    Good day all, hope you are doing well. I have a question I was hoping to ask. I was gifted a female white bellied caique and I just purchased a male for her.. He is a lovely bird and I am happy as hell to have him. But I have this one nagging feeling that he might be a cross and not a pure white...

    New Caique Owner with some questions <3

    Hi there! I just picked up my baby caique today. He's 12 weeks old. I have had lorikeets in the past and I just loved their quirky personality. I loved how mine used to roll around upside down and play with balls etc. I wanted to get a Caique as I see they have a very similar personality and...

    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...

    Unusual caique poop

    Hello new to this forum. I have a Caique, around 12 years old. He's generally been more active lately and is always vocal and ready to come out. He plays in his cage and occasionally takes naps with his leg up. I gave him carrots and jalapeño this morning and he happened to have this kind of...

    Baby Caique Quaking

    I don't have much experience with baby birds but am wondering if when he's quaking and kinda squawking because he's hungry? He's almost three months old and eats quite a bit but only the fresh foods, he seems to be avoiding eating his pellets. I'm worried he might still need to be hand fed? I've...

    My Caique Won't Stop Screaming!

    Hello everyone, I really need some help. I apologize for the lengthy post. I have an 8 year old female caique parrot who has learned some bad behaviors because of my unintentional reinforcement. I would rush to the cage when she would scream because I live in an apartment with roommates. So...

    Are a baby Caique and 4 Year Old Lovebird Compatible?

    We have had a lovebird for about 4 years. We decided to adopt a 6-month old caique. They haven't been in direct contact with each other for safety, but we are wondering if they are going to get along with one another. Thanks!

    Caique as a College Student in a Unique Situation

    Hey, So I had a couple green cheek conures up until a few years ago, which had to be given to another family due to medical issues and other extenuating circumstances. Life's gotten a lot better now, and I have a couple of years of college left. I'm thinking about getting a Caique since they...

    Black feathers on WBC’s head?

    My white bellied caique (11 years) is starting to grow in some black feathers on his head. Does anyone know what causes this and if it is normal? He is very hormonal right now and currently receiving Lupron shots for that, so I’m wondering if it could be a hormone thing for caiques.
