Thinking Caiques...... Thinking....
 
So I have always loved these little birds. Can anyone tell me how they are as companions? How they are with other birds? Are they moody? Etc. I am curious to what the owners of these little birds have to say.

I know someone has a caique on here trhat is really moody.
I held a caique once and he was really friendly, except when he was out he would rather be on his play stand then on me. He was also nippy, but I guess it depends on how the bird is raised. I also know they are very very hyper and "never stop moving" :)

I don't know anything 1st hand, but I've noticed that most people have them in pairs. They seem to have lots of high energy play. I've been thinking of them too. I think the white front are gorgeous.

I have always heard them refered to as the clowns of the bird world . I have heard they are hyper too . My husband wanted one a while ago but never could find the money to get one they are rather costly .

Love watch other peoples, but I think all that energy could wear you down. Merlins has enough & they look like double trouble. lol

There was a pair on hear for around $1200, I think that was w/cage. I have heard they are expensive.
