Re: I need help

Young WBC's very often have black feathers on their head - this will disapear. On these photos looks like black headed caique but I noticed orange feathers behind the black ones - BHC's don't have them so I think it is white bellied caique.

Re: I need help

I agree it looks like a baby white belly. Do you have experience hand feeding? It is a lot more complicated than pet stores like new owners to think.
