Wishing you best. Kudos to you for being open to advice. Hoping something will turn around the situation
Hello. My caique is 15yrs oldI need help. I have a 10 year old male caique that started the temper tantrums last spring (2013) and it is only getting worse with no normal intervals. You all know what they do when they are mad but he never gets out of this mode. He is dropping weight, he has gone from a normal of about 175 grams to 157 grams. He rejects his pellets now (harrisons) but will eat some veggies and fruit. I took him to the avian vet in August 2013 and he thought nothing was wrong. He did blood work, some levels were off but nothing that concerned him. When the vet was out of town I begged them to put my caique on Baytril in case something was bothering him. After about a week on it, it was like someone turned a switch and he seemed better. We kept him on that for 2 weeks and put him on an anti-fungal for 2 weeks also. This got him back to normal for about a month and then the whole episode started again. I cannot handle him at all any more. Does anyone else have this issue? He is in with 9 other birds in a room, there is another male caique below him that he cannot see (double stack cage).
