    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.

The problem is that my husband and I have really hectic schedules, and we’ve been trying to make it work for the past year but unfortunately Milo needs more attention than what we...

    Caique Flying into Hair

    When we got my Caique his wings were clipped. He has just started growing a few of them back. Not enough to fully fly but he can go short distances. I have started working on the basics of flight training and all is going well. The problem is whenever he gets the chance he will fly into my hair...

    I need more help

    I know I keep on posting and asking questions but I truly have no idea what I am doing. I am interested in getting a cockatiel, budgie, or caique. Where could I get a caique? I think they are adorable birds and I would love to have one.

    today, surprisingly, i got bitten by a bird and he drew blood. now, again, luckily it wasn't my bird. I was at my local bird store, and someone had brought their caiques in to be groomed. I asked a little bit about them, picked up the 'nice' one, and went back to hanging out with Jeffrey...
