I have a pair of 5 year old caiques on eggs. In my front room...

And it's a dream. Apart from night time bickering after the first egg, they've turned into a dream bird.

They pop out of the breeding cage and eat on the playstand, then quietly go back to their nest.

They've stopped chasing me round the house.

They're almost silent.
They're running at about 20% normal speed
They don't bite or lunge.
They don't eat the furniture.
They have no interest in who is outside.
They don't knock things on the floor to hear them crash and break
They could care less about my cellphone.

Apart from the round the clock birdie sex in my front room, I'm living the dream.

If you had sex on demand every 15 minutes, you'd be subdued too lol.

Caique hormones are not the issue we so often hear about.

It's caique sexual frustration!

I'm gonna make a vid tomorrow. Actually lift two highly hormonal breeding caiques out of their cage, away from their nest and then Into another cage.

While I examine the nest, unsupervised by beady eyes.

Without a net, safety harness, or first aid on standby. Lol
