    Young Caique Obsessed With Nose

    I recently acquired a six month old white bellied caique and she is an absolute dream. However, she is obsessed with my nose. Like to the point of spending all of our one-on-one time trying to grab it. She’s not being aggressive. She straight up is just trying to lick inside my nostrils. Of...

    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?

    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?
