Question 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.

Re: Thinking Caiques...... Thinking....

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"

Re: Thinking Caiques...... Thinking....

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.

Re: Thinking Caiques...... Thinking....

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 .

Re: Thinking Caiques...... Thinking....

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.

my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.
